The police dog section of Norfolk and Suffolk forces have boosted their profile by joining the social networking site Twitter.
The new account, @NSPoliceDogs, has been launched to highlight the work of the dog section, which is called out in excess of 9,000 times a year across the two counties to incidents including assisting with arrests, searching for suspects and missing people, dealing with disorder, drug searches and much more.
PC Neil Smith said: “We hope to use the Twitter feed to highlight the positive work being done by the dog section. We hope people will enjoy finding out more about us and hopefully our tweets will give some interesting insights into a very important policing tool.
“We will also look to share a bit about the dog’s downtime because at the end of the day after all their work our dogs deserve their rest and play.”
