Talk about a bad day on the beat: The day that Community Constable Toddy Martin got stabbed in the face is one he’s had to talk about quite a lot since – reporting to his superiors and to OSH and talking to colleagues.

Constable Bryan Ward and his faithful sidekick, Bobby the police dog, might be the most popular police team in the country.
