Send in The Rat Squad

http://www.dutchnews.nl/news/archives/2013/09/dutch_police_poised_to_use_sni.php

Seriously Rotterdams finest are training sniffer rats. I wonder if this has to do with cut backs. Face it rats would be an ideal replacement for dogs, take up less room and don’t need as much feeding, and there is no doubting that rats do have a keen sence of smell.

The five rats in the training programme  are named after famous detectives Derrick, Magnum, Poirot and Johnson & Johnston.

Pretty sure Rebus, Taggart, van der Valk and De Cock could be future members of The Rat Squad…
