Lapo is a 7 year old German Shepherd. Lapo was bred in Milan, originally for the Italian Military. He came to Lancashire Police in 2008 via a dog dealer and was placed with PC Roger Moore. Lapo was trained to find criminals, missing people and items of property. As Lapo is such a calm dog, he was also trained as a Tactical Firearms Support Dog where he was trained to carry a camera on his back and search buildings to help firearm officers find offenders. He worked very well as part of the firearms team and any of the officers could command him. Lapo worked for about 5 years and has also taken part in 2 police dog competitions where he has placed in the top 5. He retired in late 2013 and now has a new home with Retired Police Dog Charlie by the seaside and enjoys going to his owners’ caravan in the lakes!
