Police: A new addition to our family

Written by RSS Poster Dave B

Meet Monty our new 8 weeks old 'Cockapoo'. Different from the family of dogs we have had over the years and he will receive pure pet training. A great little character and thanks to the breeder Sarah Benson from Gainsborough for her help and advice.

Police: A sad state of affairs

Written by RSS Poster Dave B
I feel it is a sad state of affairs when the Nottinghamshire Police no longer have the number of General Purpose Police Dogs to police their own football matches, even a small club like Mansfield Town (Stags) and have to import dogs from Leicestershire. Once a great Dog Section, alas no more. My comment does not reflect on the standard of current Police Dogs or their handlers.

Police: Demise of the Nottinghamshire Police Dog Section

Written by RSS Poster Dave B
In the words of Victor Meldrew I don't bloody well believe it.

From May 4th Notts Police Dog Section goes to 10 GP Handlers, 3 specialist handlers under the Emopss ( East Midlands Operational Support Service) structure jointly working with @lincspolicek999

Police: Is this the demise of the Nottinghamshire Police Dog Section

Written by RSS Poster Dave B
I have been told that the number of operational Police Dogs is to be reduced to 8. If this is true then it is now surely the demise of a Section that supported 40 dogs and was a centre of excellence for 'training'. How can a service be provided?

Police: UK National Police Dog Trials

Written by RSS Poster Dave B
South Yorkshire Police has this year played host to the three-day national police dog trials, with Surrey Police coming first out of 21 competitors.
The trials, held at Wentworth Woodhouse in Rotherham, began on Thursday, 15 May, and concluded Saturday, 17 May.
Twenty-one police dog handlers and police dogs from all over the UK, including PC Neil Losada with police dog Ace and PC John Shaw with police dog Diesel from South Yorkshire Police, had made it through the regional trials and into the final, national trials.
Each handler and dog competed in three separate phases which form the national trials.
Harry Morton, South Yorkshire Police’s Dog Training Manager and organiser of this years trials, explained the different phases: “Phase one is tracking, which took place at Hoober Hall Farm, and allows the dog to track down and locate certain obejcts by using scent.
“Phase two is person search, this year taking place at the Wentworth Estate, where the dog, directly deployed by the handler, had to locate two people within the estate.

Police: Nottinghamshire Police Dog Section recruiting German Shepherds

Written by RSS Poster Dave B
The force is looking to recruit a number of German Shepherds under two-years-old to join the fight against crime.
The dogs, which can be male or female, will be assessed to check their suitability. If successful they may become an essential part of tracking down criminals and helping to detect crime.
If the donated dogs fail to pass the tests the force can return them to their owner or rehome them with a suitable family.
PC Leigh Whitehead said: "There may be members of the public who have a young German Shepherd who they would consider donating to us to train up as a police dog. If so, we would love to put them through their paces to see if they can become part of our team.
"All our dogs live with their dog handlers and build a bond like no other. If anyone would be kind enough to donate their young dogs to us, we will gladly take them and hopefully they can pass the test and help us catch criminals and make life better for everyone."
For more information contact PC Leigh Whitehead or Andy Pickersgill on 101.
