APEC Accreditation Gone To The Dogs
All Police staff working on APEC 99, whether two legged or four legged have gone through the security accreditation process.
Chris Taylor Detector Dog Handler and 'Bella' Taylor (both Police accredited for APEC) have been busy searching aircraft, motorcades, routes, accommodation and venues during APEC.
Yesterday they were busy checking Cornwall Park prior to the leaders spouses' visit.
Last night Bella ran her sensitive nose over the dining room at the Auckland Town Hall Great Hall before the leaders went in to dine.
Bella Taylor is 7 years old and originally was
trained as a guide dog. She had a career change as she was a
bit too boisterous in this role. As a Police dog she has
had extensive training in firearms and bomb detection.
