MANILA, July 2, 2018- Some 45 new crime-fighting dogs have been drafted into the Philippine National Police (PNP)’s K-9 unit.

The dogs underwent training from Nov. 20, 2017 to May 23, 2018 in Alfonso, Cavite.

They will be assigned as explosives detection units along with their handlers.

Police officials said the dogs, mostly Belgian Malinois and Labradors, will greatly assist the PNP in its mission for the prevention and suppression of crimes.

The PNP is short by around 131 dogs for the needs of its K9 national operational support unit. (PNA)
