South Yorkshire Police have released some dashcam footage of a high-speed pursuit that reached speeds of 90 mph.
After driving down a dead-end, the driver of the fleeing vehicle ended up decamping from his car, at which point the police dog ran after him and managed to bring him to the ground.
The brave police dog then held the suspect on the floor until officers arrived on the scene.

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.

Police dogs are a cheap and effective way of catching offenders but they are being reduced in numbers as are military police dogs, WHY?
