Nigel recently attended a fundraiser for the Retired Police Dogs Benevolent Fund. Along with other attendees, Mr Evans met with Jim Cannon (who has recently adopted a retired police dog), Sheila Maw (the founder of the charity) and Cllr Joyce Holgate.
Mr Evans said:
“When a police dog is retired from active service there is no financial support in place to ensure that they are looked after.
“They are wonderfully effective in the fight against all sorts of crime, from antisocial behaviour and protecting officers from violent criminals to the detection of drugs.
“Police dogs perform a great public service and they ought to be looked after in their retirement just like anybody else retiring from the police force would expect to be.
“I was delighted to support the Retired Police Dogs Benevolent Fund and I hope that people will consider finding a home for these loyal public servants and support the charity.”
