Last week trainee police dogs (TPD) Chief and Bruno, and police dogs Wolf and Kaiser from Police Scotland Dog Section undertook a training exercise in Nairn Academy.

Joined by police constables Naismith and Shearer and Constable Taylor from Police Scotland preventions and interventions team undertook practice searches.

During the exercise the team used the school premises and grounds to carry out practice searches.

Head teacher Julie MacDonald was also present to assist.

Constable Taylor said "We strive to work alongside our colleagues in education on issues like drugs and this is another great example of how we can work together in the fight against drugs.

"If you have any information about drug use in schools within the Highlands and Islands you can report this anonymously through fearless.org, which is designed to help young people speak up about criminality in our community, making their lives and that of their communities safer places to live."

Pupils and parents can also contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
