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.
