On Sunday morning at 1am there was an afterparty at an Outram address and four young people stole a quad bike from a farm.
It was seen heading towards Outram and our community patrol located the bike on Riverside Rd.
Our police dog handlers tracked the youths to a nearby paddock.
They have all been spoken to and referred to Youth Aid.
We have five dog handler teams in Dunedin that work shift work, so there is always at least one team on all the time.
The dogs are used to follow people when someone runs from the scene of a crime. They are used on the armed offenders squads and can also be used if going to locate potentially violent people where a barking German Shepherd snarling away can have a deterrent effect on anyone thinking of assaulting a police officer.
Dogs are also often used on burglary calls or when people are on property that should not be there.
