Sterling (IL) Police Department just got a furry new officer and she’s already the most popular member of the force.
Brinkley is a 2-month-old puppy who’s not your average police K9. She’s being trained as a “comfort” dog, to connect with the community during stressful times, visit schools and be a goodwill ambassador.
ABC 7 reports that Brinkley will also be at the station to help calm the victims of crime and those who just need the joys that only a loving pet can bring.
Brinkley will also be at Sterling Police Department for morale, to help officers dealing with burnout and tragic situations.
Law Officer is the only major law enforcement publication and website owned and operated by law enforcement. This unique facet makes Law Officer much more than just a publishing company but is a true advocate for the profession.
