Sgt Louisa Foulds, who leads the Dog Section, said: “We will use our new recruit as a pro-active drugs and weapons detection dog. “Each dog undertakes a six-week course learning to identify drugs through scent and they are also trained to search for weapons.”

Sgt Foulds can be contacted on 0845 456 4567.
