CAP was developed by its director, Daniel Cojanu as result of an idea by a coworker while employed at the Oakland County Prosecutors Office as the Supervisor of Victim Services. After researching various programs around the country, it was felt that we desperately needed such a program to assist child victims who were going to be required to testify.
We were very fortunate that Leader Dogs for the Blind in Rochester, MI donated such a fine dog as Amos to the program. Amos came to us extremely well trained and with the assistance of Leader Dogs, helped us with the training of Amos to work in the court system.
Amos has been widely accepted by many judges who allow us to utilize their courtrooms to train with Amos. His frequent visits have made him the unofficial mascot of the Oakland County Courthouse.
