Louth Search Dogs have had a busy few weeks after assisting Lincolnshire Police to help find three missing people, and they have succeeded in each case.
This local group of volunteers have also just finished their annual joint training exercise with the force, which included two of the stars of TV programme, Police Interceptors.
Thanks to kind support from Dobson’s Farms, CV Stubbs and Jewson’s on the Fairfield Estate, the joint training was held in woodland, open fields and the yard of a builders merchant.
The Louth based group has been going for 20 years, is funded by charitable donations, and is believed to be the only such group in the country to be trained and assessed by a Police Dog Section.
LSD cover the whole county, from Fen to Wold to seashore, and train for all environments. On a live call-out, LSD become an additional police resource and are allocated an area by the Lincolnshire Police Search Advisor and then organise and carry out the search for the missing person themselves.
