Norfolk and Suffolk Police welcome newest recruits to the fight against crime
Norfolk and Suffolk constabularies have welcomed two new four-legged recruits to their ranks to help tackle crime.
13-week-old springer spaniel brothers Milo and Remus will start their journey by assisting handlers PC Stuart Watson and PC Adam Haylock and getting used to their new surroundings.
They will then go on to begin formal training in 12 months’ time before becoming fully fledged members of the team specialising in drugs, weapons and cash searches.
PPD Remus will eventually join PD Hera as a crime fighting duo and PPD Milo will join PD Loki. Officers within the dog section intend on documenting their journey and training as they both eventually become drugs/weapons and cash specialist search dogs.
The pair will be filling the shoes of former police dogs Billy and Ivan as they retire from duty.
Suffolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Tim Passmore, said: “Keeping the Police Dogs Team up to strength is crucial for tackling and deterring crime in Suffolk.
“The skill set of the dogs and their handlers is second to none and I am delighted to welcome these two new members to the dog unit."
