Sniffer Dogs UK & International is a charitable organisation whose aim is to provide funding to any or all UK Police Forces, for the specific purpose of procuring and training the numbers of Detection and General Purpose dogs they require, to bring their Dog Units up to full operational strength. And to provide funding to train Police Dog Handlers up to Instructor level, where necessary, to acquire and disseminate that expertise among their own Units. And to raise public awareness of the vital work that the Police Dog Units carry out on a daily basis. Furthermore, to provide a similar service to Search & Rescue K9 Units across the UK.

It costs only £4000 to procure and train a dog to fully operational standard, takes only 8-12 weeks to achieve, and they work on average for 6-7 years. A very small price to pay to support the vital work of the UK Police Dog Sections. Help us, to help them keep us all safe.

Cumbrian Police receive Police Dog Action of the Year Award 2010
for tracking down Derrick Bird.
Due to current government cuts to Police Budgets across the UK, most of the Dog Sections are struggling to replace their retiring dogs, and keep these frontline units at fully operational strength. This places all of us at greater risk than ever before. Fewer Police Dogs mean fewer detections, fewer search apprehensions, fewer convictions, and fewer finds of both drugs and more importantly, explosives.

Police Dog Working Group Special Award
goes to PC Wells and Obi of the Met Police.
During the rioting in London last August, Police Dog Obi was hit by an object thrown at Police, and suffered a fractured skull. He is fully recovered and back on full operational duty with his handler PC Wells.
Suffolk dog handler PC Steve Jay and police dog Aman will be presented with a prestigious award at this year’s Crufts Dog Show.
The pair have been chosen to receive the Police Dog Action of the Year Award 2011 at the event on Sunday 11 March.
The award comes after both PC Jay and Aman were injured during the arrest of a man in Ipswich on Tuesday 25 October. The pair received stab wounds but made full recoveries and were back on full operational duty by the end of November.
PC Jay said of the award:.....
"I am extremely thankful to be nominated and proud to be chosen to get this award and accept it on behalf of all that were involved in the incident. Aman thankfully made an excellent recovery and has no lasting physical side affects."
Assistant Chief Constable Paul Marshall added: "PC Jay should feel extremely proud that he and Aman are in line for this award. It is an excellent example of the bravery shown by Suffolk's police officers who sometimes have to take extraordinary actions in their everyday role as well as ensuring the public are kept safe from harm.
"We offer our congratulations to them as it is very well deserved and is testimony to the many risks that police officers take on a daily basis and is in the very highest traditions of the force." See other videos on the site by Clicking here
