In 2022, IRMA received the most IRMA Award Applications in recent years. It is our pleasure to highlight all Member programs as they all provide value in reducing municipal risk and increasing safety.
The Morton Grove Police Department's Heelers Program was developed in accordance with research in support of therapy dog programs to address mental and behavioral health of the police department. Services are provided to all sworn and non-sworn personnel and civilian staff of the Village. The program has offered significant benefits to employees in building department morale, increased mental and physical health and help with debriefing after critical incidents.
