Sheffield Interchange welcomes police dogs in training exercise

 

17 August 2016

 

COMMUTERS were greeted with trainee Ministry Of Defence Police Dogs on their arrival to Sheffield Interchange this morning, as The South Yorkshire Police Dog Section visited the site as part of a training exercise.

The visit gave the four dogs, and their handlers, the chance to interact with the travelling public, as part of a working partnership between South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) and South Yorkshire Police.

South Yorkshire Police Dog Training Instructor, Jim Nunn, said: “We’d like to thank SYPTE for their cooperation today. Sheffield Interchange was the perfect location for this dog training exercise, and we look forward to conducting more training here in the future.”

SYPTE Executive Director, Stephen Edwards, said: “We were delighted to welcome The South Yorkshire Police Dog Section to Sheffield Interchange this morning. Passenger and staff safety is our upmost priority, and our partnership with South Yorkshire Police ensures that we are able to prevent incidents of anti-social behaviour on public transport and in our interchanges.”
