The department said the vest used by Rudy will include the words “In Memory of K9 Gabo, Jonesboro, AR- EOW 1/16/20.”

Gabo was injured in December 2018 after the Jonesboro police SWAT team went to a Jonesboro apartment complex on a call.

He was shot five times at point-blank range and died in 2020 after a serious illness.
