Mist gets her man at park demo

Whangarei Report - - WEEKEND ACTION -

A dra­matic po­lice sce­nario played out on Whanga¯rei’s Okara Park, in­volv­ing two he­li­copters, armed po­lice, a ca­nine crime fighter and an “of­fender” dressed in a red tutu wield­ing a gun.

It was po­lice dog Mist that had the fi­nal say, tack­ling the of­fender and drag­ging him along the ground be­fore of­fi­cers pounced and hand­cuffed the sup­posed bank rob­ber, much to the de­light of the crowd on Satur­day. The sce­nario was part of a po­lice re­cruit­ment day and pro­vided the crowd with some ac­tion be­fore the Tani­wha kicked off against the Waikato side in the ITM Cup.
