Therapy K9s: Changing the way law enforcement reaches their communities (Webinar)

Event Dates
Policing in a "post-Ferguson" world has left many law enforcement agencies asking how they can better reach their communities. In March 2017, Sheriff Dallas Baldwin of the Franklin County Sheriff's Office in Columbus Ohio created the first law enforcement therapy K9 program in the state of Ohio. Over the last two years, they have watched as this innovative approach to community-police relations has broken down barriers and built bridges within their community.

In this webinar, members of the Therapy K9 team will speak about how they created their program and built it into a model for other agencies to emulate. Participants can expect to leave with new insights, strategies, and approaches that will equip them with a solid foundation to start a therapy K9 program of their own.
