Norfolk and Suffolk's long arm of the 'paw' has added two new members to the ranks.
Police dogs Nero and Harry have been recruited from the West Midlands Police puppy breeding programme.
The pair have been settling in with their new handlers, PC Mark Cushing and PC David Carter in Acle.
At the end of February, the canine cops will be put through intensive training and testing, including obedience and agility work, searching fields and buildings and tracking.
If successful both German Shepherds should be operational by May.
PC Mark Cushing said: 'The dog section plays a pivotal role in catching criminals and keeping people safe; I think it's one of the best jobs in the police and I'm pleased to be part of the team.'
PC David Carter added: 'Harry has settled in well; he shows some promising characteristics so I'm confident he will take the training in his stride.'
