|About||JSDI encompasses work surrounding support that dogs provide to vulnerable people. This includes work of our justice facility dog, Oliver, in the Criminal Justice System and therapy dog, Poppy, working on topics relating to well-being|
The Justice Support Dogs International Lab (JSDI) resides in Canterbury Christ Church University and is a multidisciplinary lab building on expertise from the areas of psychology and policing. It was established to better understand how dogs can support vulnerable individual in our society.
Its key aim is to promote the use of professionally trained Facility Dogs in the UK Criminal Justice System, and to build an evidence base for the value of these practices on a global scale.
Further, the lab's mission is to evaluate support offered by different types of dogs in different types of settings where vulnerable individuals might benefit from such support.
We hope that by building evidence-base surrounding the use of dogs we can promote change in how vulnerabilities are perceived and supported in communities and also in the Criminal Justice System.
