Remmy posted a topic in UK Policing NewsHead of dog unit set to be summonsed to court after solicitors launch private prosecution A Merseyside police inspector faces a private prosecution over an operation that saw dozens of dogs rounded up and destroyed. For the full story please use the following link. http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/police-inspector-faces-private-prosecution-10042917 I hope the force gives the Inspector it's FULL support and not use him as a convenient scapegoat. I can't for one moment believe that legal advice from the force solicitors wasn't sought about the possible consequences of this action. Wish him all the best and hope this is resolved quickly.
Four people have been arrested on suspicion of immigration offences after an incident on the M1 where a dog unit attended. At just 7am today (Tuesday, May 19), police were called to the Toddington service station off the northbound carriageway of the M1 following a report that a group of people had jumped from the back of a parked lorry. Officers attended the location and a group of people ran away from the area. An officer and dog from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire (BCH) Dog Unit were deployed to assist with the search for the people, as well as the police helicopter. Police Dog Kane, who is the unit’s oldest dog at eight and a half years old, was used and was soon tracking. He led his handler, PC Graham Ashby, from the forecourt of the service station and into a nearby field. The pair then crossed a small river, entered a second field and went through bushes before reaching the bank of another river. Kane tracked along the riverbank and located three men who were quickly detained without incident. A fourth person ran, entered the river and crossed to the other side. After the detained men were taken back to other officers, PD Kane and PC Ashby returned to the waist-deep river and waded across. The police helicopter was overhead at this stage and directed the pair towards dense undergrowth where the person was last seen. Kane again started tracking and quickly located the person who was also detained. PC Ashby from the BCH Dog Unit said: “It’s an absolute pleasure to work with Kane and, although he is our oldest dog, he still has an excellent nose and brilliant agility. We work together extremely well and we’re always happy to assist other policing teams at various different incidents. “You can now follow our team’s work on Twitter by visiting www.twitter.com/dogpoliceBCH.
