This Judge has four legs, he’s a police dog with the Winnipeg police force. On September 26th Judge and his human partner, Constable Scott Taylor, had a night that most in the force can only dream of. They had an unprecedented six arrests in one evening!police-dog

Here are the details from the Winnipeg Free Press.

Shortly before midnight on Sept. 26, Const. Scott Taylor and police dog Judge, who have worked together since 2004, tracked down and arrested two suspects in a strong-arm robbery in the North End, and recovered the victims property.

But Taylor and Judge were just getting started.

The pair then tracked down a suspect in a domestic assault.

Later that night, suspects abandoned a stolen vehicle in The Maples and fled on foot, only to be collared by Tayor and Judge.

Finally, at 6 a.m. on Sept. 27, a man suspected of beating up another man who suffered serious injuries. The suspect took off, but Judge and Taylor found him in a nearby yard and made the arrest.

The Winnipeg Police Service has 15 dogs and 10 handlers, normally there are three to five arrests per month in the canine unit. Wow, way to go Judge, you are a true dog hero.
