Cops issue appeal for new recruits to join sniffer dogs

Energetic dogs that love chasing tennis balls are wanted by Nottinghamshire Police to help the fight against drugs.

The dog section is looking for springer spaniels or labradors aged between eight months and two years, to bolster the number of specialist drugs dogs at the force.

Any animals deemed suitable would be trained as full time police sniffer dogs.

If anyone believes they have a dog that could be suitable they should call the dog section on 0115 967 2180.
