Canine coppers from West Midlands Police have given demonstrations of their skills at a fun day to launch a new fund supporting retired dogs.
The Retired WM Police Dog Benevolent Fund will raise cash for dogs who have finished active duty, to pay for medical care and rehoming costs.
The fund was launched with a fun day at the Tally Ho training ground in Edgbaston, where visitors were able to see the dogs in action - including bite training.
The dogs are taught to respond to aggressive actions from a suspect, and leave when called off by their handler.
