Puppies in Surrey are being put through a selection process as part of a process to become police dogs.
Surrey Police has started the initiative to provide more police dogs to the service.
The first formal stage of selection is taking place where the dogs are judged on temperament and behaviour.
Several pups will then be chosen to be taken forward for the full training as police dogs.
