Police Dog Performs CPR on Partner

A police dog in Spain apparently has been trained to perform CPR.

In a video of a demonstration posted on Facebook by police in Madrid, Poncho sprang into action when his partner fell to the ground and pretended to be unresponsive. The dog’s actions mimic cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

The dog repeatedly used its front paws to pound up and down on the officer’s chest while pausing to place its ear on the officer’s neck to detect a pulse. Poncho continued until the officer stood up.

Police wrote Poncho “did not hesitate for an instant” to save a life.

GRPD Take Kids to Tigers Game

About 100 local kids got to enjoy a Tigers game thanks to a program hitting a home run in the community.

On Monday, officers from the Grand Rapids Police Department took the kids to Detroit for the game. It’s part of the department’s “On Base” program, which helps build relationships between police and the community through baseball.

For many, it was the first major league baseball game they’ve ever been to. The GRPD says it’s important for kids to interact with them when officers aren’t in uniform, and realize that they’re normal people too.

Unfortunately, the Tigers lost 5-4.
