HC Deb 22 June 1961 vol 642 c149W
5. Commander Kerans

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will give consideration to the establishment of mobile patrol cars with dogs to patrol the Metropolitan Police area at unscheduled times in order to curb the activities of gangs in the streets.

Mr. Renton

Vans with police dogs are already used for patrolling in the Metropolitan Police District. The Commissioner considers that they have made a substantial contribution to the prevention of crime and the checking of hooliganism.
