Puppy power! The Northumbria Police dog section is set to grow bigger with a new litter of crime-fighting hounds.
The force is taking on a new litter of labrador puppies, which will start their training when they are old enough to leave their mother.
Each pooch will then be homed with a handler as they begin their journey into becoming a detection dog.
But first, Northumbria Police is appealing for the public's imagination in coming up with the animals' names.
Each puppy needs to be given a name beginning with letter J - and you can make your own suggestions on the Northumbria Police Facebook page.
