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.
