Stansted Airport has recruited two new, fluffy members of staff.
Police dogs Buddy and Holly and their handlers PC Mark Webster and PC Hayley Peek will be patrolling the airport in the search and detection of explosives.
Chief Constable Stephen Kavanagh said: “The security and the safety of passengers and airport staff is a key priority for our force and I’m delighted we are strengthening our team with these new additions."
“PC Mark Webster and PC Hayley Peek and police dogs, Buddy and Holly, bring a specialist and a unique set of skills to the airport to help identify criminals and disrupt criminal groups."
The handlers were given their licences on Monday, October 23, and will start operational duties next week at Stansted.
The new additions will help to help deter, disrupt and detect criminal activity and bring reassurance to the thousands of people who leave and arrive at the airport every day.
Essex Police is currently also training another additional police dog to increase drug and cash searches at Stansted Airport with the aim of introducing them to the Project Servator team in February next year.
Project Servator is an initiative dedicated to deterring and detecting criminal and terrorist activity, as well as reassuring the general public.
