Sergeant Mark Yielder and his police dog, Uno, will be leaving Cumbria Police Department for the last time next week.
After joining Cumbria Police 30 years ago today, 19 July, Sgt Yielder worked in Barrow and Wigton before reaching his dream of becoming a dog handler.
Describing it as the ‘most special job in the world’, Sgt Yielder joined the dog section 25 years ago, becoming the Sergeant in 2007.
Cumbria Police say that one example of PC Woodward's good work was when he was called to an incident at the Stoneyholme Golf Club in Carlisle after an alarm had been tampered with. He predicted that as soon as Police left, the person who had tampered with the alarm would return and break in.
PC Woodward and his general purpose dog, Barney, waited and after a while a man arrived, broke into the golf club and attempted to steal from the gaming machines. PC Woodward and Barney arrested the suspect who was later charged for burglary.
The presentation takes place at 1pm on Wednesday 5th March at Cumbria Constabulary Headquarters, Carleton Hall.
