Roxy is a 7 month old, Red Labrador Retriever acquired from and trained by Professional Canine Services. She is the twelfth member of the Plymouth County Comfort Dog Program.
On October, 17 2023, Halifax Police Chief Chaves said, “The Halifax Police Department wants to thank District Attorney Cruz and his entire staff for the generous gift that started the Halifax Police Department Comfort Dog Program. Roxy is extraordinarily popular with the entire community. The impact she and Officer Campbell have made on the community has been overwhelming, and they are just getting started. They will be a very busy pair as they meet all our residents. We are truly grateful for this partnership which will take our community engagement to new heights.”
That day, Roxy and Officer Paul Campbell took on the challenge and embarked on a mission to spread cheer and compassion throughout the town, one wagging tail at a time.
