Volunteers are given Victim Services sweaters to wear while working their weekly shift.

In his first 2.5 years of service, Caber the trauma dog helped 500 victims.

He is the first trauma K9 in Canada.

His human partner, Kim Gramlich from British Columbia, had him on hand while she did a presentation for the Taking Action for Victims event held on Tuesday in the Macoun Lounge at SIAST.

She said Caber has the ability to connect with trauma victims in a way humans cannot.

The event was held to coincide with National Victims of Crime Awareness Week held April 6 to 12. Mayor Deb Higgins signed a proclamation declaring the week in Moose Jaw as well.

For more information, check back to the website later this afternoon.
