Police Dog Section cutbacks

It is unusual for me to enter the political spectrum on this 'blog' but having read that Police Dog Sections are all falling under the axe, latterly South Yorkshire, I feel I must agree with many who say, "Don't look at the front line, look at higher ranks". Does the Police Service need so many highly paid supervisors? Duplicitous ranks i.e Chief Inspectors, Chief Superintendents, Assistant Chief Constables coupled with the likes in the Civillian employees.
Police Dogs provide an excellent service and have always been undervalued.
