The Ontario Provincial Police are putting their four-legged colleagues in the spotlight via a calendar.
"The OPP Canine Team has become an elite team of specialized personnel who are highly respected among agencies across North America for their exceptional police work," said an OPP news release.
The calendar features dogs from canine units across the province.
Funds raised benefits the OPP Youth Foundation.
"Members of this Unit provide canine support for search and rescue, tracking wanted persons, detecting narcotics, and are used extensively in searches for explosives, cadavers and physical searches. The officers and their canine partners can often be found in elementary school classrooms educating young people about the OPP and the value of safe communities.
"When you match up a police officer who is in top physical condition and pair him with a dog that lives to track, you have created a highly effective police partnership. And that partnership is being recognized on a 2018 OPP Canine Unit calendar. Every month will feature a professional photograph of an OPP canine member, each of them highly regarded members of this Ontario Provincial Police specialized team."
Calendars are selling for $15 (tax included) and are available online at OPP Off-Duty Shop.
