The Wichita Police Department has introduced a “facility dog” to help bring a calming atmosphere to victims of crimes. Laddy the yellow lab has already been in service for a week.
The Wichita Police Department reported more than 2,300 incidents of violent crime last year. They hope that Laddy, as well as his human partner, Michele Blunck, can provide a bit of relief to those affected by such crime. The two are part of the Victims Assistance Unit, which administers emotional, cognitive and physical support for victims.
