Lincolnshire Police rank well at dog trials

Top dog: Logan and his handler placed well in regional police dog trails this month.

Lincolnshire Police’s PC Barry Peach and his five-year-old German shepherd Logan finished third in regional police dog trials.

On July 10, Peach and Logan represented Lincolnshire Police at the Regional Police Dog Trials held at Sheffield, south Yorkshire.

The trials consisted of various exercises designed to test the dog’s tracking, obedience and bite work. As a team, Peach and Logan triumphed at the criminal element of the trials.

Inspector Andy Ham, Head of Lincolnshire Police’s Dog Section said: “The competition is an opportunity for forces to showcase the skills, training and professionalism of their handlers and dogs and we are extremely proud of PC Peach’s and Logan’s achievements.

“The force has a good record of success in both the regional and national police dog trials and PC Peach and Logan have ensured that this has continued.

“As a police dog handler Barry is a role model so I am particularly pleased that his skills have been recognised through this competition.”
