NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — A new furry friend joined the New Haven Police Department family Friday.

For Cameron, Inc. is a Connecticut organization that partnered with the New Haven Police Department to donate comfort dogs to the department.
“They are going into schools, they’re going into police stations, they’re just helping people that are in need and who have faced trauma in their lives,” said Isabella Firine, vice president and co-founder of For Cameron, Inc. “And they’re highly trained with anxiety, depression, trauma so they’re biggest thing is just going out and helping people.”
