The Cold Lake RCMP is welcoming their newest four-legged crime fighter. Police Service Dog Harp and his handler Constable Jason Jacques are settling into their new role as the detachments first police dog. Jacques and Harp trained together at Innisfail for about five months before being posted to Cold Lake.

Jacques and Harp will be used as a team both in the city and around the area. They may even see action as far north as the Fort McMurray area. Jacques is a second-generation dog handler. His dad also teamed up with a dog in the RCMP for a number of years.
