Vernon police dog apprehends two

You run, you get bit: that’s the motto of police service dog Cain

One of the Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP’s youngest officers has been applauded for his efforts.

Cain, a police service dog with the detachment, has received praise from his commanding officers and the public through a post on Facebook commemorating a strong week on the job.

“Cain crossed some names off his Christmas wish list this last week with two apprehensions in three days,” Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP said. “Your steak is on the way.”
