Shot cop keen to return to force

He still has no bottom jaw from where he was shot in the face, but Senior Constable Bruce Lamb didn't have to think twice about going back to work.

The Christchurch police officer graduated from the New Zealand Police Dog Training Centre yesterday, with his new black labrador Mylo.

His previous dog, Gage, was killed when Mr Lamb and Constable Mitchel Alatalo were attending a house call in Philipstown, Christchurch, last July.

Mr Lamb was shot in the face and Mr Alatalo was shot in the leg.
