The Suffolk and Norfolk police dog section has a new recruit.
Thirteen-month-old police dog Roxy and her new handler Pc Annelly Miles, based out of the Bury St Edmunds police station, have joined the section as a general purpose team assisting officers with searches and public order patrols.
Roxy is the sister of another police dog, Ozzy, whose handler is PC Nick Lofthouse. She was initially a family pet but was returned to her breeder before coming to the dog section.
All police dogs have to go through rigorous training and tests involving obedience and agility work, and searching fields and building to track hidden people.
Pc Miles said: “We’ve been together since July and we have taken her training at a steady pace.

“She’s gradually worked out what the games are and if she gets it right she gets her toy and lots of play. It was clear early on she has a good nose for tracking.”
