April Fools…..

Dave is one of the bravest and kindest police officers, Finn is one of the most incredible dogs we have ever met, We have the pleasure of calling them friends of Police Hour, Dave will be missed within policing but has one of the most amazing futures ahead of him.

They have been through one of the most incredible danger adventures together what seemed liked the longest period of time in Dave’s life he thought he has lost Finn, He thought he had lost the dog that instantly jumped in the way of a knife to save Dave paying the ultimate price.

Police Dog handler Dave Wardell who was saved during an attempted stabbing incident by his police dog Finn has handed in his police warrant card.

Dave Wardell was a police officer based in Stevenage and was involved within an incident in October 2016 that would change his and his dog’s life Finn forever.

That evening would bring about a campaign for Finn’s Law & a book deal as Brave Finn and Dave responded to a serious policing incident suddenly Finn was stabbed with a 10-inch knife but still “refused to let go” of the suspect, helping to protect his handler and leading to an arrest and subsequent conviction.

Soon followed a Police Twitter Award, and then book following the incident which shared the true account of what happened that evening when PC Dave Wardell and his police dog Finn changed down an armed attacker who quickly turned on them.

The knife was meant for Dave but Finn jumped in the way. The book is based on the loyal actions of Finn, a German shepherd who was based the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire dog unit which inspired the book Fabulous Finn, 

Dave Wardell has this evening announced he has handed in his warrant card ahead of a major TV deal.
