A police dog handler from Yaxley has paid tribute to the most trusted and loyal dog he has ever worked with.
Last week retired Police Dog Yeoman passed away at the age of almost 13 following illness. He and his handler, PC Paul Rogers, had worked together for around six years.
Yeoman originally started his policing career with Norfolk Constabulary in 2006 but was returned to his breeder after he didn t get along with their handlers. It was their recommendation that the German Shepherd should not work as a police dog.
However, Paul who has been a handler for 14 years, and an RAF police dog handler previously for eight years picked him up the day after his return and immediately had a connection with the dog. They completed their training together the same year and then hit the streets of Cambridgeshire.
