On Thursday, September 29th, Safe Humane honors 17 Chicago Police Department officers who are essentially the first in the chain of collaborative justice that makes Chicago safer and more humane. Working with the community, these officers bring dozens of abusers to justice and help ensure that hundreds of animals get a good life in good homes with compassionate people – for the rest of their lives. Patrol, SWAT and Animal Crimes Team (ACT) officers will be showcased for nine specific cases involving dog fighting and other animal abuse, domestic violence, severe neglect, even murder. Hear about them, and meet a few of the more than 800 animals rescued by these officers.
