New litter of puppies for Essex Police

First published in News

A NEW litter of puppies have joined the Essex Police family.

Seven-week-old Tia, Tyson, Tex and Turbo have been paired with volunteers who will look after them until they are ready to begin training.

Essex Police dog Xena was bred with a male dog from a private breeder for her second litter.

All were given names beginning with T after PC Terry Collinson, one of the instructors.

A spokesman for Essex Police said: “Each of the puppies has been paired with a volunteer known as a puppy walker.

“They are members of the public who give up their time to help prepare the dogs for training by getting them used to as many environments as possible.

“They don’t train the pups but introduce them to as many different people and places as possible from noisy train stations to crowded shopping centres so they become familiar with everything they might encounter in their working career.”

When the puppies are 14-months-old they will team up with a police dog handler and could be walking the beat by 2016.

The size of the Dog Unit Should be increased along with the Motorbike unit, at the expense of The Helicopter Division, which should be disbanded.
Police dogs are invaluable against the war against crime and criminals.
The Bikes and Fast car Interceptor teams should be increased.

(On a sad and highly controversial note, the new dogs should be named in memorium to Police dogs, that have died while on duty and training since 1995, during and after The Sandon issues). I count about four of them:

And the one who was kicked to death by an Essex police handler while being strung up by his chain in Sandon leading to the RSPCA banning any of it's dogs being rehomed in police training centres .

And the ones left to die in a police van in the sun.

Have you seen the big yellow advert that appears on the homepage about dog chipping.....
"Offer open to dog owners over the age of 18, regardless of benefit status"
What has benefit status got to do with anything and is that how things now have to be advertised?
