Two canine handlers and their furry partners have begun serving the Saint John community.

Constables Mike Jackson and Scott Boyles, along with police service dogs Maverick and Arlo, recently completed their training program.

Saint John police say the addition of these teams will enhance the force’s capabilities and reinforce their commitment to public safety.

“Safety and security are our utmost priorities, and the addition of these two new canine teams to our force strengthens our commitment to the community,” said Chief Robert Bruce.

“We are proud of the handlers’ dedication and the bond they have built with their canine partners during the training period. Together, they will provide invaluable assistance in maintaining law and order and upholding public safety.”

Jackson and Boyles will work alongside Const. Peter Haslett and his dog, Diesel.
