Police dog “Eve” successfully tracks and locates suspicious male

Blackfalds RCMP was dispatched on Feb. 6, 2019 to a complaint of a suspicious male

Blackfalds RCMP was dispatched on Feb. 6, 2018 to a complaint of a suspicious male at a rural residence in Lacombe County.

Police determined that the vehicle being driven by the suspect had previously been reported stolen and that the suspect fled on foot.

Red Deer RCMP Police Dog Services (PDS) was then called to attend the scene. Six-year-old German Shepherd Eve began her search, successfully locating the suspect several kilometres away at an industry plant site.

The suspect was arrested without incident.

“Our police service dogs’ operational success is a direct result of the immense amount of time and effort that PDS teams put into their continuous training,” Cpl. Scott Lowe of Alberta RCMP PDS said.

The press release stated that Eve’s achievement is a great example of the work police dogs do in Alberta.

“In Alberta, they play a critical role in keeping our citizens safe by assisting members during investigations and targeted enforcement initiatives. Canine members are trained in a variety of capacities including locating lost persons, tracking criminals, searching for narcotics, explosives and crime scene evidence,” the release stated.
