The States Police Parish Community Officer PC Dave Bisson has recently added a new weapon to his arsenal for tackling crime; Police dog Jack is a drugs, cash and firearms detection dog.
Jack is a 17 month old English springer spaniel who undertook a 6 week training course in the UK, who was joined by PC Bisson for the last week in order to be assessed and licensed as a proficient team.
Jack has already made the pages of the local press having had some early success in detecting a quantity of drugs within an hour of first stepping foot on the island.
Jack joins PC Bisson's other working Police dog Turbo, who enjoys chasing Jack around the fields near to where they live.
Jack has settled in very quickly at PC Bisson's St John's home and is enjoying being part of the family.
PC Bisson says of Jack, 'He is a typical Springer, he's mad and has endless energy, he's a real handful to work at the moment but has an incredible nose, so I know we are going to have lots of success'
Jack will work with PC Bisson for the next 6 - 7 years
