A community resource dog (CRD) will be a valuable addition to our community. The dog would be assigned to Norfolk School Resource Officer Joe Choiniere to be utilized within Norfolk Public Schools and the community. The CRD will help Norfolk Police de-escalate situations involving youth and adults who have mental health issues, anxiety, depression, substance abuse or in crisis.
These specialized trained dogs come from Golden Opportunities for Independence (GOFI) located in Walpole. The initial cost of the dog is around $20,000. The Norfolk District Attorney's Office has already pledged $5000 to Norfolk's community resource dog program.
and help bring this valuable resource to Norfolk!
All donations will help,
even the smallest contribution goes a long way.
