Yesterday saw the Darlington cadets first deployment at the forces Dogwise event. It was a fantastic day with the cadets taking to their roles and taskings with ease. They were welcomed into the policing family by both Mr Barton and Mr Banks who both took time to speak to the cadets at length.
The Dog Support Unit staff were brilliant at making the cadets feel part of the team and got them involved in the displays which put them in the spotlight. This will have no doubt had a positive and welcoming effect on the cadets.
They went home beaming! They will be a fantastic asset to policing and community engagement in Darlington.
