Boulder DA Wants Courthouse Dogs
The Boulder District Attorney’s Office is considering getting a courthouse dog to comfort victims and witnesses during trials. A nonprofit organization based in Washington state called the Courthouse Dogs Foundation (facebook) works with courthouses to place highly trained dogs in courtrooms to help witnesses and victims during trials. The Courthouse Dogs Foundation (website) has placed 41 dogs with courthouses and law enforcement agencies in 19 states, including two with the Aurora Police Department.
