A hairy canine crimefighter is getting ready for a life of apprehending villains by completing his first assignment - guarding Midland small and medium sized businesses.
Khan is Warwickshire Police's latest recruit to their dog section and in a few months time could have his Home Office licence to put the bite on anyone on the wrong side of the law.
But first, Khan, along with other German Shepherds and specialist sniffer dogs, are having their skills tested in training exercises after the Bayton Road Group - made up of tenant firms on the Coventry estate - and The Hub resource centre answered the call to identify suitable buildings.
Some 200 companies around the estate, which is the largest in Warwickshire, are already members of Business Watch, a police initiative which shares information about suspicious incidents and the allure of dogs on site proved too much to resist.
The Hub's project manager Robert Godfrey said: "We heard from business crime advisor Mike Whitehead that the police were looking for buildings which could be used by their dogs day or night.
"If their training can be enhanced on the industrial estate, then we are only too keen to get involved because we acknowledge the importance these dogs have in preventing crime - they play an absolute crucial role in policing."
Khan was gifted to the force by a local family and is working with a designated handler under the directions of an instructor. The well behaved beast is learning tracking, to search for people and property and how to detain offenders.
Sergeant Phil Reddall, dog training supervisor from Warwickshire Police, said: "There is always someone out with a dog and the unit is on duty 24 hours a day.
"The job demands so much from the dogs, so they have to be good all rounders and capable of doing a multitude of tasks."
