Two Northamptonshire police dogs were responsible for saving the life of a suicidal man at the weekend.
The force paid tribute to police dogs Harper and a trainee dog, Stanley, after they led their handler to the man while out on a run on Friday.
The dogs found the man in an area that had already been searched, unsuccessfully, by humans.
In a tweet on Saturday, the dog handling team said: "Police Dog Harper enjoying her morning run with Trainee Police Dog Stanley.
"Last night she located a suicidal male who was in the process of causing himself very serious harm in an area already searched by humans.
"Our dogs save lives as well as catching criminals."
