Local organization to host diaper drive for victims of child abuse

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month and one Aberdeen group is collecting child supplies to help out local families. The Child Protection team is made up of 10 different organizations and businesses working to stop child abuse.

District attorney’s office hires K-9 duo to help child abuse victims

The district attorney’s Bureau of Victim Services announced two unusual hires Monday to help support victims of child abuse and sexual assault.

New K-9 employees Skippy and Bert can be spotted walking around the downtown Hall of Justice with their handlers, Martha Carbajal and Ashley Meyers.

Skippy is a yellow Labrador retriever and Bert is a golden retriever and yellow lab mix.

Both are dubbed “facility dogs.” Unlike other K-9 teams trained to sniff out drugs, explosives and other dangers, facility dogs learn dozens of cues to help them work with victims of crime.
