Meet the New Queensland Police Cadaver Dogs

Three dogs with unique skills will be sworn into the Queensland Police Service on Thursday, putting their intense training into practice.

Police Dogs (PDs) Bertie, Larry and Prue will be officially sworn in at the QPS Academy, Oxley campus, as Human Remains Detection Specialist (cadaver) dogs.

The four-legged comrades have undergone intense specialist training with their handlers and are stationed at the Brisbane Dog Squad where they perform duties throughout the state as Cadaver Detection Police Dog Teams.

The only other state to have cadaver dogs is New South Wales, which results in regular requests for the Queensland team to provide assistance to other police departments throughout Australia.

As of Thursday, the QPS will have 68 General Purpose dogs, five Explosive Ordinance Response Team dogs, 11 Drug Detection dogs, and four Human Remains Detection (cadaver) dogs.
