Answer for Dangerous Dogs (6)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Any award made by a Court is subject to the complete discretion of the Justices. The Crown may make an application for reasonable costs incurred in bringing the prosecution or for costs in retaining a dog pending its destruction. It should be noted that any award usually goes back to the treasury and not back to the Police.

This figure is therefore not held by the MPS Status Dog Unit.
