[Naperville, IL] Naperville Police Department’s K9 partners, Officer Chris Sherwin and Sabek, a crowd-pleasing and impressive German Shepherd, kicked off Northwestern College’s Celebrate Learning Week at its Naperville Campus! While Officer Sherwin shared a wealth of information about law enforcement and K9 Units, Sabek surprised the students by walking amongst the crowd looking for a little love and attention, with the students being more than happy to oblige with lots of petting and a couple of hugs!

Officer Sherwin spent over an hour talking about how K9 Units are an integral part of local police and county law enforcement departments, teaching both students and faculty about the breeding, training and bonding that goes on with the canine partners. During the demonstration portion of the evening, Officer Sherwin had one of Northwestern College’s School of Legal Studies’ instructors, Officer Mike Collins (23 year officer of the Palos Hills Police Department) hide and then had Sabek find him. The students got to hear Sabek’s loud, insistent bark when he located Officer Collins, reminding them that in addition to being a beautiful dog, Sabek is in fact a very smart and dedicated police officer of the Naperville Police Department.

Northwestern College thanked its own Instructor of the School of Legal Studies, Sgt. Juliet Fabbri, for arranging this educational and extremely enjoyable experience for Northwestern College’s students and faculty. Sgt. Fabbri is also a 25 year veteran of the Naperville Police Department, 11 years as an officer.
