Guest Speakers in March at Stanmore

Police Detector Dog Visit – 1.00pm 11th March 2020

NZ Police dog handler Bruce and his detector dog Milo are visiting Stanmore Road Step Ahead to talk to members about their role fighting crime and protecting the public.

Detector dogs hunt out cash, drugs and sometimes firearms. Bruce has been a dog handler with the NZ Police for many years and has lots of great stories to tell. His dog Milo is about to be retired and his new dog Luther is shown in the photo below. (on the left).
