A CUMBRIAN police officer has shared a photo of Cumbria Constabulary's latest recruits - two German Shepherd pups!

The dogs will begin training this week to become general purpose (GP) dogs. Their duties will include searching for missing people, tracking and detaining suspects who run, and searching for property.

The photo was shared by Insp. Kim Brown, an ops support inspector at Cumbria Police. Kim leads the tactical support groups and dog units.
