This week we were invited to South Wales Police Academy and got to meet the gorgeous Carter and Winnie! They are South Wales Police Wellbeing Dogs and are responsible for provide a calming presence and have helped officers deal with traumatic and stressful circumstances and de-brief processes.
Euro Commercials sponsored their stunning new wellbeing van and will allow the team to travel across South Wales and Gwent force areas.
Carter and Winnie have joined the team via the ‘OK9’ branch of Oscar Kilo, the National Police Wellbeing Service. The service currently has representation from 30 UK Police Forces and Fire and Rescue Services across the country. The service aims to make wellbeing dogs available to all forces who wish to introduce a dog as part of their wellbeing provision.
