Brave Scots police dog takes first flight in helicopter
Bodie joined the force in May last year and took to the air for the first time on Monday.
One of Scotland's newest police dogs has taken his first flight in a helicopter.
Bodie, who joined the force in May last year, took to the air for the first time on Monday.
Police dogs are taken up by the force's helicopter team to familiarise them with helicopters.
A spokesman for the dogs team said: "We had a great time - Bodie was a star and well behaved."
Last week Bodie and the Police Scotland helicopter unit teamed up to find a missing person.
And earlier this year he caught an alleged housebreaker after tracking him for more than a mile.
A few days later he helped arrest three men allegedly stealing from a building site in Paisley.
Bodie started out with Police Scotland's Aberdeen division but transferred south in June 2017.
