Animal welfare training
Members of my team have undertaken a training session with the RSPCA that will allow them to support our animal welfare volunteers to monitor the health and wellbeing of Gwent Police dogs.
Animal welfare volunteers make regular visits to Gwent’s police dogs to ensure that they are properly looked after and have their needs met both when they are at work and at home.
They were introduced after the high-profile death of a police dog in Essex in 1997.
This training will give us greater resilience within the team and help us to ensure that Gwent’s police dogs are looked after to the highest standards.
