West Midlands Police has released body-worn camera footage of the moment PD ‘Neon’ found a suspect who had sought refuge from the dog’s keen nose in a toilet somewhere in Coventry.
However, the suspects attempt at trying to throw PD Neon ‘off the scent’ failed after he managed to track him down.
The suspect was wanted by the police after allegedly ramming a police car in his bid to outrun the long arm of the law.
In the video (below) PD Neon and his handler PC Steve Wain can be seen tracking the suspect purely by the scent that he left behind as he tried to flee from the police.
As PD Neon gets closer to the building, he hones in on the door where the suspect is hiding behind.
In true police dog form, PD Neon barks at the door in order to let his handler know that the individual they have been searching for is behind the closed door.
The sound of PD Neon’s barks is enough to convince the male to come out from his hiding place without further incident.
This short video is yet another prime example of the invaluable service provided by police dog sections up-and-down the country.
