The Manitoba First Nations Police have seen unprecedented results after the introduction of their K-9 Unit.
K-9 Ceto has helped in close to 30 arrests since completing her training in May. Including two at the Waywayseecappo First Nation over the weekend that saw her track down suspects for over 1000 metres and even finding a suspect underwater.
“She’s an amazing animal and has great skills.” said the acting Chief of the MFNPS Bruno Rossi. “Some arrests would have been made; some wouldn’t have been made without Ceto. She’s a great asset to our Police Service.”
Rossi said that due to the success that Ceto has had, the police service is looking at adding another dog to the force and having a dedicated K-9 Unit.
Ceto has helped out in all sorts of calls around the province since she started. While she deals with all the arrests, there is another dog owned the MFNPS that specializes in Search and Rescue.
The MFNPS is expanding into OCN in 2020.
