A police dog visited Braintree College this week as part of the annual Essex Police careers day.
Presentations were made by the force support unit, search advisors and CID, as well as the dog unit which did a demonstration with PC Gary Lambert and police dog Shift in finding some hidden cash, to around 70 students.
The event is in its fourth year after founder and co-ordinator PCSO Lorraine Keating worked to build close links with the college.
PCSO Keating said: “As part of Braintree Neighbourhood Policing Team, we regularly work with Braintree College.
“This presentation day to students on the public services course who are considering a police career is always extremely well-received.

“It was also important to show the human side of police work that you don’t often get to see, which is really important for community cohesion and liaison.
“PCSO Keating has done a wonderful job in co-ordinating the visit and we value the effort she has put in into making this a successful and valuable event.”
