SALFORD POLICING HAS GONE TO THE DOGS AND THE FUTURE COULD NOT BE IN BETTER PAWS

Local News

It has taken six weeks of hard intensive training, involving going out and about to busy environments to meet and mingle people and other dogs.

GMP are happy to announce that both pooches passed, are now ready for action and will be out on the streets of Salford & Greater Manchester with their new handlers.

Aayla is a 15-month old Springer Spaniel who was born at GMP and bred specifically to be a police dog. Despite her subdued look, she is a bundle of energy and power and her natural ability to search was shown on her course when she visited venues across Greater Manchester.

Her pet police officer PC Mark Richardson will work alongside his new boss, an amazing young lady whose nose has already led her to many successful finds during her training. She has a bright future ahead.

Aaylas fellow colleague Murphy, is a two-year-old Springador (Springer Spaniel cross Labrador) who through no fault of his own, found himself in the care of Spaniel Aid, who are a charity that helps re-home dogs. He is a very clever dog and the charity thought he was best suited to a working role so he started his working life at GMP.

Over the last few months he has been out to places, such as, Manchester Airport and Piccadilly train station where he has met lots of lovely new people. He has taken everything in his stride and is very popular and will be working alongside his pet, PC Rob Kinley.
