VICTIM SERVICES DOG

Any dog lover will tell you having a canine friend is to have unconditional love.  A dog somehow knows what you are feeling, will listen and comfort.  It's those canine specific traits that make dogs the perfect fit to help victims of crime or trauma.  The Ottawa Police Service is working to acquire such a dog.  This week police officers and staff got to meet Canada's first K9 Trauma Dog and his police handler who are travelling the country promoting the program.
