Greenville Police welcome Max the Malinois to the team

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -
Max the malinois is a stuffed animal the Greenville Police Department will give to children facing a traumatic event.

GPD Spokeswoman Kristen Hunter says they have found that when you provide a child with a stuffed animal, they are comforted.
The department already hands out stuffed animals for similar situations, but none of them are quite like Max.
     
Max will also make appearances across town. You can keep up with his many daily adventures on GPD’s social media platforms, Facebook and Twitter.
GPD says they are considering selling the stuffed animals once they come in. The money would go to the same children this program was intended for.
