An old swimming pool repeatedly targeted by vandals is now being used to help catch them.
Police dogs are undergoing training at Bon Accord Baths in Aberdeen, which has lain empty for ten years.
Officers frequently called out to investigate criminal activity realized the derelict leisure center was the perfect place to put the pups through their paces.
Trainers use vents in the huge drained pool to plant drug samples for the paw patrolâ€™s next generation to sniff out.
With great acoustics, lots of different smells and a variety of surfaces, the site is the perfect place for the 16 police dogs to train.
