5:38 am
on the force. ((kirsten joyce)) >> belkys nerey has the story on how these k-9 companions are making it easier for young crime victims to open up to officers. "can you give me 5" dog looks at camera "give me 5" he's cuddly "you want to lay down, are you lazy today?" and he's ready for for some t-l-c. but "rocky" isn't here to play fetch. "he knows he has his vest on, so he won't play" the two and a half year-old chocolate lab is helping davie policet some of the smallest victims. "instead of the fear of talking to an adult, they see the dog, which gives them comfort. it reduces their anxiety and they feel more comfortable talking to us as investigators." it's part of a program that began in central florida: rescuing shelter dogs then training them for the force. but not every pooch can make the cut. rocky was first certified as a therapy dog. then he went to the doggie police academy in brevard
5:39 am
is an integral part of the force. "i previously did investigations without rocky and it was very difficult to sit with a 5-year-old, a 6-year-old, a 7-year-old, because they're looking at us as adults, they don't know us, they don't know who we are, and for them to tell their horrific story to us has got to be very stressful." davie therapy dog -raw.mpg 10:32:37;09 "we bring him in, introduce him to the child, and we see how see their comfort levels." it's an approach that works. in his first case, rocky was brought in to comfort a 15-year-old victim who refused to talk to investigators. "without him there we would have never received, we would never have known who she was, where she was from, or what had happened to her." and rocky isn't a fleeting friend. he sits with the victims through each interview with detectives and as they meet with attorneys. "you need the dog to be there for you when you're not having a good day, when you need somebody sitting there with you to comfort you and let you feel loved.
5:40 am
rocky brings that to these victims that need that during this crisis in their lives." sherry how's the weather today? ((sherry swensk)) this morning will hang out for

((sherry swensk)) back to you./// ((kirsten joyce)) funeral services are being held today.. for the nine-year-old boy killed by a pit bull. derion stevenson was attacked on august 17th.. after visiting a friend's house . when he got to the front door.. the pit bull got scared and attacked the child. the funeral is being held at the greater mount sinai baptist church at one-pm. a go- fund- me page has been set up to cover funeral expenses.
