A DOG handler is bowing out after 30 years with the police force.
Colin Hunter will officially retire in two weeks’ time.
But Colin will not be the only one – his police dogs, five-year-old German shepherd Yogi, and nine-year-old yellow Labrador Dell, will be heading home with him.
The 51-year-old dad-of-one was bid a fond farewell by the first ever police dog handler in Grampian, Sandy Reid, 81, in a nod to how the service has developed over the past 50 years.
Colin, who lives in Keith, joined Grampian Police aged 21, just a year after Sandy retired.
