A police dog has been praised after she managed to find a member of the public who was suffering from a mental health crisis.
Police Dog ‘Thea’ and his handler had been tasked by Dyfed-Powys Police to try and find a member of the public who was going through a distressing mental health episode.
PD ‘Thea’ and her handler had been given information concerning the last known location of the patient, as well as a rough direction of travel.
It wasn’t long before PD ‘Thea’s’ nose managed to pick up the scent of the person who had gone missing.
PD ‘Thea’ and her handler found the vulnerable person standing next to the edge of a cliff – they had got there just in time.
Thanks to the excellent communication skills of Thea’s handler, the vulnerable person was talked back from the edge of the cliff and is now receiving the help and support they need.
