Nottinghamshire police has welcomed Dutch police dog PD Rambo to its team after he has been licenced with his new handler PC Coupland.

The 16-month-old Belgian Malinois joined Nottinghamshire Police from a private breeder in Holland late last year and he has been busy training and learning the ropes.

Following a 13-week training programme PC Coupland and PD Rambo were formally licenced which means Rambo will now be working as a General Purpose Dog.

His duties will include searching for suspects, items and missing people as well as tracking and detaining offenders and controlling hostile crowds.
