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. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
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.
