A specialist dog handler has been named West Midlands Police's Dog Handler of the Year after a string of achievements in recent months.
PC Suzanne Cheek helped coordinate the police dog response to the 2011 summer riots - and was among the officers who had petrol bombs thrown at them and were shot at.
PC Cheek made West Midlands policing history last October when she became the first woman to achieve the national police dog instructors badge.
The 36-year-old has also retired her former crime-fighting pal, PD Beau, and welcomed new recruit PD King to the force, having trained him since he was a puppy.
