Pc Mark Johnson update

Pc Mark Johnson whose dogs died after being left in a car for seven hours in a heatwave had 'forgotten' about them, Nottingham Magistrates heard today.
The prosecution allege that he failed in his responsibility towards the Police Dogs in his care, which led to their sufferring and death.
The Court heard that at the time of this incident Pc Johnson was sufferring from depression and an obssessive disorder.
PC Johnson arrived at work at 6.44am on June 30, 2009, and returned to his dogs at 2.20pm the same day. His car's windows closed and there was no water for the dogs.
Pc Johnson had failed to adopt his normal routine in removing his dogs to a more suitable environment and had forgotten about them.

'Guilty', 6 months conditional discharge and £2,500 costs

I will make no further comment.

Police Dog Blogs

Cambridgeshire Police puppy blog

This has been attacked as a waste of money and Police time, being purely a PR exercise. I believe anything that encourages community enagement should be used and is of value, especially in the face of bad publicity which always makes headlines.
