Meet our Police Dogs

Our four legged officers are specially trained and must be healthy, of good temperament and most importantly, be bold and courageous!

The talents of our canine companions are still an invaluable crime-fighting tool for us at Gwent Police.

Our Police Dogs have different specialist skills including being able to detect drugs, money, firearms, explosives...the list goes on, along with assisting our Public Order and Firearms units.

Their sense of smell is much more sensitive than us humans, so we use this to our advantage to help us to detect and prevent crime.

Want to know what all the fuss is about? Well, we'd like you to meet them...
