On Thursday, January 30, two Cleveland canines were given new licences as part of the Force’s Police Dog Support Unit and they’re set to patrol the streets.

Police dog Ty, a 15-month-old Malinois cross, is now being handled by PC Jimmy Grieves, after his previous dog retired.

Morse, a German Shepherd who is nearly 5-years-old has been re-licensed by Cleveland Police and will be handled by PC Darren Williamson.

Sergeant Paul Harker, from the Dog Support Unit, said: “We’re really pleased to have new licences for another two dogs to go out onto the streets with their handlers and help us in the fight against crime. Police dogs are a great asset to the Force.

“We’d like to thank PC Jo Willis, from Staffordshire Police, and our instructors for assisting with today’s assessment.”
