Armour and cameras have been ruled out as a high-tech kit option for front-line dogs.
Dogs could be given remote-control commands and take pictures of the people they were chasing with the kits.
Their American, Canadian and European counterparts have been fitted with the armour, which has wireless cameras, speakers and a microphone attached
The technology is dear, costing almost $26,000 for up to 3kgs of dog armour.“It’s always good to see what is available but we see no practical operational application for it in New Zealand at this time,” New Zealand police spokeswoman Kaye Calder told NZPA.
