Police dogs will be given their own pensions to ensure their medical bills are paid after they retire in a first by a police force.

Nottinghamshire Police will give dogs up to £1,500 in pensions after saying the animals should be recognised as "officers in their own right."

The police force is the first in the UK to announce the scheme to recognise the efforts of highly trained dogs to help catch criminals.

I wish we could do that here, along with dogs serving in the army.  It is not like that have a choice in what they do for a living.  They should be honored and paid for their service.

Why the face palm? Yes they are dogs but they performed a public service and should be taken care of after retirement.
