San Mateo County Sheriff Christina Corpus announced Friday a new program within the office she leads, “therapy dog,” a community outreach initiative to bring comfort to people in crisis and help foster positive interactions between the Sheriff's Office and the community.

This initiative, the Sheriff's Office detailed in a statement, is a commitment to strengthen its bond with the community.

Ben, the furry companion who has joined this law enforcement force, has a sweet demeanor and the ability to share unconditional comfort that will help decrease anxiety symptoms and improve the mood of people in crisis. 

Through a statement, this authority specified that the therapy dog program aims to improve community outreach by recognizing the therapeutic impacts that an encounter with a friendly canine companion can have on children and adults alike. 

At the same time, he pointed out that his objective is to expand this program to guarantee that members of the coastal communities belonging to San Mateo County have access to this resource.

“I am very pleased that we can now offer this additional resource to the people we serve. “The therapy dog program has been a vision of mine for many years,” said Sheriff Christina Corpus.

?Ben is a friendly face who will soon be part of the community. “I invite you to join us at upcoming events to meet Ben in person, ask questions about our therapy dog program, and experience the benefits of an emotional canine firsthand,” he added.
