The police are recruiting again, but not for police officers, they’re looking for police sniffer dogs. The police are asking for dogs, ranging from Labradors to Border Collies and Springer Spaniels.
Anyone who offers a dog for recruitment will have their dog assessed for its suitability to the police force. Sergeant Paul Cragg is the chief of Lincolnshire’s Police Dog department, he says about the appeal:
Each dog goes through a thorough assessment to check his or her suitability for this important role.
As all dog lovers will know, every animal has an individual personality and temperament, and we go to great lengths to try to ensure that the dog is right for us, and just as importantly, that working with the police is right for the dog.
Anyone who wishes to talk to me about our police dogs, is welcome to contact me. If anyone donates a dog which passes our course, we will be happy for them to visit the Dog School to see the dogs and how we work with them.
If you’re interested in donating a dog to become the newest member of the police force and help the country’s police department you can contact the Lincolnshire Police Dog section on 01522 527924.
You’ll even be able to visit the dog school to see your dog being trained.
