Oceanside RCMP announced one of its officers has passed his Police Dog Services (PDS) training.  

Const. Kyle Sharpe, who has been with the RCMP for 11 years, is working with his new partner, Locklin, after five months of training in Innisfail, Alberta. 

Since returning to Oceanside a month ago, Sharpe and Locklin have tracked down four suspects and located a person in a mental health crisis, police said. 

One of the suspects previously evaded police and had six warrants, RCMP said. Sharpe and Locklin tracked the man five kilometres from Errington to Parksville and found him in the bush.

Sharpe volunteered for thousands of hours over the past decade, working with his local PDS units as a training hand, according to RCMP.

Sharpe is awaiting a full-time PDS position in the Lower Mainland.
