COPS Monitoring welcomes first K-9 assistant

WILLIAMSTOWN, N.J. – Alarm monitoring service COPS Monitoring has welcomed its first K9 assistant, Kovu, into the workforce.

While there are roughly half a million service dogs at work in the United States alone, not every work environment is safe or hospitable for their “paw”-ticipation. However, at COPS Monitoring Kovu has found an ideal home.

“I can’t tell you just how pleased I am that COPS Monitoring is the perfect atmosphere for employees and their service animals,” said COPS founder and President Jim McMullen. "I’ll be honest, in our 45 years, it was only recently that we were approached with the idea of accommodating a K9 companion.  There are talented people with service animals that may not know about us, and we are working to change that. We are fortunate that our monitoring centers are the perfect place for people with service animals who are inspired to help others through the work that we do.”

“It's surprisingly difficult finding companies that have the right atmosphere for service animals,” explained Rebekkah, Kovu’s companion. “Kovu and I feel so fortunate to find a place like COPS Monitoring. We both feel at home here and are proud to be productive members of the team.”

She added, “When he’s working, he’s very vigilant and has his eye on me at all times. When he’s off the clock, Kovu is a goofy, fun-loving boy who can usually be found at home playing with his tennis ball. He also enjoys tagging along at the farm to help keep me in good company.”
