Women are once again being urged to lead the fight against terrorism at home and abroad.
The renewed plea from the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit comes following the trial of a Hounslow woman for a terror offence.
Keith Evans is West Midlands Police’s guru on dangerous dogs who is helping shape new government legislation to tackle issues like banned breeds, dog attacks, and so called ‘status dogs’ used to intimidate.
He joined the force’s dog unit in 2001 and, after studying canine psychology, now advises on national police policy for dealing with fatal or serious dog attacks, plus works closely with groups like the RSPCA and the British Horse Society.
Police officers are never truly ‘off-duty’ – and rookie officer Kiran Patel showed why just weeks into his new public service career when he leapt to the aid of a child knocked down on a busy dual-carriageway.
PC Patel was on a rest day having dropped his mum at work when traffic ground to a halt in New John Street West, Hockley, and the screams of fellow motorists alerted him to a schoolboy lying in the road.
