Hatty, the amazing Labrador, sworn in at Chicago
Chicago, United States Of America
The Chicago State Attorney's office has a new member who will help the employees by providing emotional support. Hatty, who is a young and energetic Labrador, is the latest member of the house. It was an emotional movement for all the employees when Hatty joined the team and was sworn in at the office. The 2-year-old will be on the same 9-to-6 human schedule, but the job will be entirely different. She will be there roaming around and provide emotional support to everyone who needs a hug or someone to play with. The main aim is to ease the stress of the criminal proceedings on young children, and those who have mental health issued. Hatty will handle up to 200 cases every year. She was partly trained by the inmates and will be the first emotional support provider at the office.
