A brand new temporary exhibition charts the history of Police dogs in the UK. 

The National K9 Memorial Exhibition 'Its Not All About Teeth', will showcase the changes in use of protective equipment, from a 1950s bite suit to high tech cameras. You will also be able to see the life of a Police dog puppy and their walkers, and what happens to dogs when they retire. 

In a poignant part of the new exhibition, there will be section dedicated to the brave dogs that have lost their lives in the line of duty.

The exhibition coincides with the unveiling of the National K9 Memorial in Oaklands Park on 12 April.
