Public Services students meet prison dogs

DOG1STUDENTS at Priestley College got a sense of what life was like for prison sniffer dogs and their handlers.

HMP Manchester’s dog section visited the college to show Public Services students – many of whom have aspirations to join the police or Armed Forces – what they were capable of achieving.

Among them were dogs that search for drugs and others that are used to uncover phones hidden by prison inmates.

“They showed us how the dogs worked and even used students in the demonstrations,” said Tutor Chris Seaton.

“It was a unique experience and gave the students an insight into one of the different roles within the prison service.”
