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!
