Their importance to the police force is crucial to not only assisting with arrests, but being officers first responders in situations that they themselves may not be able to respond, as is the case in this instance when chasing down a fleeing suspect was required.

A police canine is being hailed a hero after it chased down and apprehended a man suspected of stealing a car and leading cops on a high speed chase through Florida.

Police body cam footage has been released showing how K9 officer Shep meted out ‘woof justice’ to the fleeing suspect, who had abandoned a child inside a vehicle thought to be stolen.

The attempted escape on foot came after a high speed police chase after a traffic stop escalated and the suspected car thief fled on foot onto a property.
