If you should have the misfortune of seeing this particular

"Bodie" is, without doubt, one of the most magnificent
looking "public servants" that I have ever seen
over the years. In his short career at the age of only 3
years he has been responsible for 37 persons being arrested.
These have included thieves, drunk drivers and even those
subsequently charged with assault.
"Bodie" is one of only 3 dogs which form a new
elite group of Leicestershire Police dogs which has evolved
from the traditional German Shepherd breed.
They are Belgian Shepherd Dogs or Malinois, bred for their
athleticism, stamina and most importantly a tremendous enthusiasm
for the job! Whether it is searching for missing persons
or ensuring that visiting football fans are on their best
behaviour "Bodie" looks forward to each task with
