The Oscar Kilo wellbeing and trauma support dogs service aims to build on local police wellbeing dog services and make wellbeing dogs available to all forces who wish to introduce a dog as part of their wellbeing provision.
On this page, you will find out all about the wellbeing and trauma support dogs, meet our recruits and find out what makes them tick.
