This short video, shared by the Devon & Cornwall Police Dog School, shows exactly why police dogs are one of the best ‘oppos’ a police officer serving on the front line can have!
In the tweet, @DCPDogSchool said:
“PD Comet cast start at junction. Hard surface track on busy estate. Showing bark indication on a single car key dropped”.
Police Dogs, often referred to as ‘land sharks’ are one of the best ‘assets’ response team officers can have whilst responding to various emergency calls.
However, under current law, police dogs are regarded merely as ‘property’ meaning that if someone assaults a police dog, then they are charged with ‘criminal damage’.
Hopefully, at some point, ‘Finns Law’ will make it onto the Statute books meaning that service animals are given the protection they deserve!
Followers on Twitter were quick to give praise to PD Comet with many stating that they could do with his ‘nose’ in order to help them locate lost / missing items!

Before you go...
WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger? If you would like to help back our mission of reporting on fact-based news, then please consider helping to support us financially.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
I think police dogs are fantastic also a credit to there trainers well done comet
