Durham Police K9 officers Rogue and Hawk have developed the gentle art of ‘persuasion’ through their training and through dogged determination, and that skill was on full display Saturday when the two canine officers “talked” a suspect into surrendering quietly to police.

Rogue and Hawk, along with handlers PC King and PC Wright, managed to persuade the suspect to exit the Whitby house they were hiding in without incident, leading to a peaceful resolution to a potentially dangerous situation.
