Police Dog Shadow Retires after Seven Years’ Service

On Friday 13th September, Police Dog Shadow, who was partnered with PC Darren Williamson, completed his last shift.

Shadow Shadow will be retiring after seven years’ service in the Force.

Speaking of Shadow’s retirement, PC Williamson, said, “Shadow has been at my side every working day for many years and we made a great team!

“Some of Shadow’s highlights include apprehending a man in the process of breaking into someone’s house, indicating the presence of two men hiding in a loft after burgling a property and receiving a Chief Constable’s commendation after he detained a man with an imitation firearm in a busy town centre.

“We’ve had a great run and Shadow will be dearly missed in the Dog Unit and I hope he enjoys his well-deserved retirement.”
