Delphine Lamothe, head of the brigade, is accompanied by Like, 8 years old. And since trust is paramount, obedience must be perfect. Like has to resist everything, even the bits of croissants thrown at her by her mistress because, it’s a golden rule, “no eating during the service”. For the dog, anyway. For the master… the audience laughs: “Me, I have trouble with this rule! »

Dissuade before intervening

The stadium becomes a theater stage, including its – fake gun but real shots – and lights – smoke bombs. The police and their dogs turn into actors. Here, a couple arguing violently in the street, there a group of noisy and indelicate young people in a park. Nothing to scare Like, Madness (driven by Boris), Sniper (and Anthony) or Seth, on the contrary. “The more noise, the more threat, the more critical it is and the more fun the dog has. For him everything is a game, ”clarifies Delphine Lamothe. Besides, it is better not to forget the toys in the car after a very calm patrol.

Like must immediately obey Delphine Lamothe in all circumstances.

“The more noise, the more threat, the more critical it is and the more fun the dog has. Everything is a game for him.

Calm, patrols are often because “the first impact is to moderate behavior, to push back. The real added value of the canine brigade is to prevent situations from generating deterrence, ”says Jean-Michel Loubaney, head of the public tranquility center and the municipal police of Cenon. It is not for nothing that Like, Seth, Madness and Sniper, trained in both the intervention and the detection of narcotics, are German shepherds, 40 kilos at least.

“Strong political will”

The creation of this canine brigade, in 2019, responded to “a strong political will” and “a real need for security” of the inhabitants, according to the municipality. Particularly in the priority neighborhoods of Palmer and La Saraillère, where the feeling of insecurity is great and where the brigade patrols regularly. In three years, “it has shown all its effectiveness and has become a driving force”, welcomes the mayor of Cenon, Jean-François Egron. She has even expanded, with a policeman and her dog in addition, and will soon see Like’s retirement, far from the police station but still close to his mistress Delphine Lamothe.
