RAF Police supporting joint investigations

An RAF Police Military Working Dog team from RAF Brize Norton has provided vital support to a joint force and home office policing operation.

Corporal Kiernan and Military Working Dog Holly from No.7 RAF Police Air Mobility Security Squadron at RAF Brize Norton have been praised for their hard work supporting a Royal Navy Police and Royal Military Police joint investigation.

"Working on joint Armed Forces and civilian Police operations is hugely beneficial to all stakeholders involved. This operation saw Military Working Dog Holly and I, encounter new search environments such as naval vessels and busy local nightlife, whilst supporting other policing agencies.

The vast range of areas, locations, and types of taskings that I can be called to deploy to, as a specialist search team with Holly, demonstrates the versatility and reliability of the Military Working Dog asset. The successful operation with the Royal Military Police at Larkhill makes all the long hours of training and searching worthwhile."
