  1. Image copyright Hertfordshire Police Image caption Police dog Finn was stabbed in the head and chest while on duty in Hertfordshire in 2016 A law giving protection to service dogs and horses has been given Royal Assent. The new legislation means causing unnecessary suffering to a service animal is now an offence in England and Wales. It was inspired by German shepherd Finn, who was stabbed while trying to apprehend a man in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in 2016. Finn's handler PC Dave Wardell said he was "so happy Finn has gone down in history". "What a legacy for the job he absolutely loved doing every day of his career," he said. Image copyright Dave Wardell Image caption The extent of Finn's injuries prompted campaigners to call for changes to animal attack laws PC Wardell and Finn were both stabbed when trying to catch a man suspected of robbing a taxi driver at gunpoint. The dog was stabbed in the chest and head but did not let go until reinforcements arrived. It was initially thought he was unlikely to survive but he recovered and was back on active duty 11 weeks later. PC Wardell, who was knifed in the hand, credited Finn for saving his life. But while the 16-year-old suspect was charged with actual bodily harm in relation to wounds to PC Wardell, he faced only criminal damage charges over the injuries to Finn. Since then the police officer has been campaigning for an amendment to the Animal Welfare Act 2006. Police dog watches MPs pass new law 'I begged the vet to save my boy' Stabbed police dog made 'animal of year' MP for North East Hertfordshire Sir Oliver Heald was given permission to bring in the Animal Welfare (Service Animals) Bill in 2017. PC Wardell said: "This has been an amazing journey and such a positive campaign to be part of. All this positivity came from such a negative event. "I would like to thank every single person who has supported us through this. I can't believe we've made history." Image copyright Hertfordshire Police Image caption Finn needed emergency surgery and handler PC Dave Wardell was treated in hospital Chief Constable Charlie Hall said what had happened to the pair was "etched in all our memories". "After months of campaigning, it's great to see something so positive coming to fruition which recognises the importance of police dogs in our family," he said. Sir Oliver said he was "delighted" the Bill now had Royal Assent and thanked everybody who had been involved. A bill receives Royal Assent once it has completed all the parliamentary stages in both the House of Commons and the House of Lords, and when the Queen formally agrees to make the bill into an Act of Parliament and therefore the law. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-47878060

  8. Four people, including two firefighters, have been killed after an explosion caused a huge fire at a bakery in the French capital, Paris, officials say. Cars were wrecked and other buildings were damaged by the blast on Rue de Trévise in the 9th Arrondissement. A gas leak is said to have caused the explosion around 09:00 (08:00 GMT). Paris and other cities have been bracing themselves for new anti-government protests. Some 80,000 police officers due to be on duty on Saturday as "yellow vest" demonstrators keep up their pressure protest, even though the Paris explosion is not thought to be connected with the demonstrations. What happened? The Hubert bakery at No 6 Rue de Trévise was not due to be open at the time of the blast, Le Parisien newspaper reports. A gas leak had been reported in the building and firefighters had been on their way to deal with it when the explosion occurred. Image copyright AFP Image caption Firefighters were reportedly hurt in the blast Helicopters landed on the nearby Place de l'Opéra to evacuate the injured, Reuters news agency reports. A passing journalist, Emily Molli, described the force of the blast and vast extent of the damage. Skip Twitter post by @MomesMolli End of Twitter post by @MomesMolli Skip Twitter post 2 End of Twitter post 2 by @MomesMolli A resident named Killian was asleep when the explosion blew in his windows. Everybody in the building came downstairs, he said, and he could hear screaming. The blast also destroyed a theatre, he told French news channel BFMTV. "I was sleeping and woke up by the blast wave," Claire Sallavuard told AFP news agency. "All the windows in the apartment exploded, doors were blown off their hinges, I had to walk on the door to leave the room, all the kids were panicking, they couldn't get out of their room." Image copyright EPA Image caption At least 20 people were hurt Paula Nagui, a receptionist at the nearby Diva Hotel, said there had been an "enormous blast" that shattered all the windows. Anxious guests had received assurances that it was not a terror attack, she told Le Parisien. Why such heavy security for the protests? For the ninth Saturday in a row, demonstrators are turning out to criticise the government's policies in a mass phenomenon which began with a protest over tax on vehicle fuel on 17 November. Called the "yellow vests" because of the colour of the high-visibility vests they wear symbolically, they have disrupted traffic on roads and in towns across France, and their marches have descended into some of the worst rioting France has seen in decades. Who are the 'gilets jaunes'? Les gilets jaunes: The full story Yellow vests could be seen gathering outside the finance ministry in Paris on Saturday. Image copyright AFP Image caption Protesters have gathered outside the French finance ministry Prime Minister Edouard Philippe recently announced plans to punish people who hold unsanctioned protests. Ten deaths have been linked to the unrest, all but one in traffic accidents, the tenth being an elderly woman hit in the face by a tear gas grenade in her flat in Marseille. More than 1,500 people among the demonstrators have been injured, 53 of them seriously. Nearly 1,100 members of the security forces were also hurt, French TV reported on 5 January. As of 6 January, 5,339 people had been taken into custody and 152 had been sent to prison, the justice ministry told L'Express newspaper. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-46849633

About us

Police Community was originally founded in 2014 by two serving Police Officers.

In 2016 it was incorporated as a limited company called RAW Digital Media Limited and then purchased 3 other forums; Police Specials, UK Police Online and Police UK to form the largest policing discussion forum network in the UK. In 2019 the decision was taken to merge all four forums into this main form of www.police.community
