Police force sniffing out new police dogs
DOES your dog have what it takes to become a crime-fighter? If so, Cambridgeshire police want to know.
Cambridgeshire Constabulary is on the look-out to recruit the next generation of police dogs, and is asking for the public’s help.
The force wants an adult dog or bitch, preferably a German Shepherd or Malinois, which should be aged between 12 and 24 months, for training at the Alconbury-based dog section.
The successful candidate will be fit, bold and possessive of a toy, say police.
Sgt Owen Rogers, from the dog section, said: “The type of dog we are looking for doesn’t need to be nasty, but should be confident and inquisitive. If suitable, the dog would go on a three-month training course prior to being licensed as an operational police dog.

“It would then be working on the streets of Cambridgeshire, helping locate suspects and protect the public.”
INFORMATION: Anyone who thinks they have a suitable dog should contact Sgt Rogers on 101.
