PD Elmo

Handler PC Jerreat

On December 18, 2017 five year old Police Dog Elmo died unexpectedly from illness. He had a stomach torsion and twisted spleen.

Known as #TeamBlackDog, Elmo worked alongside his handler and PD Jake in Avon and Somerset.

His handler said Police Dog Elmo was: “THE most loyal and honest companion I have ever had the pleasure of working with x”

In mid 2017, Elmo suffered a fall at work and undertook rehabilitation at the Chapel Farm rehabilitation centre. There, he was simply called ‘Legend!’

Elmo is pictured with his trophies. He is twice the Regional Criminal Work Shield winner (2016 and 2017) and the Overall Phase 3 Winner Obedience and Criminal Work Champion in the National Police Dog Trials (2017).
