On Monday 23rd October, the Gozo College Middle school Student Council, invited the K-9 Police Section to perform a show with their service dogs. The dogs were well trained and followed the sergeants’ instructions. The two sergeants that carried out this performance explained to the students the whole process of the training and how these dogs can help them in their daily police work. The students had the opportunity to ask questions about the training of dogs, police service and also had the opportunity to pat the dogs. Students were enthusiastic to have such as event in their school.
