Seven dog handlers graduated after six months of training at the Naboro Corrections Centre.

The seven officers of the Fiji Corrections Service (FCS) are part of the Emergency Control Unit of the FCS and have been training their dogs on distance control, obedience, tracking as well as other aspects of dog handling.

Speaking to the officers during their graduation, Senior Operations Officer, Seremaia Baikeiyasawa reminded the officers that they need to be serious about their roles as dog handlers.

“You have done well in training your dogs and maintaining that trust with each other. Please work hard and ensure that you carry out your tasks efficiently as the department will be relying on you during times of emergency,” said Mr Baikeiyasawa.

Altogether, the Dog Unit of the FCS has a total of 19 dog handlers based in Naboro, Nasinu and Lautoka and has a total of 27 dogs.
