The Courthouse Dogs Foundation is presenting the first conference dedicated to educating criminal justice professionals and assistance dog organizations about the benefits of professionally trained facility dogs assisting in the investigation and prosecution of crimes.

Detectives, victim advocates, CASA leaders, forensic interviewers and prosecutors will provide firsthand knowledge about the practical and legal aspects of working with these special dogs.

Dr. David Crenshaw, a child psychologist and James Ha PhD, an animal behaviorist, will share their expertise in their respective fields and explain how the animal and human bond can make criminal justice proceedings less stressful for the people involved in this process.
