New police recruits have completed a 24-hour-run in honour of the Essex Retired Police Dogs Fund.
On Friday September 20, 18 of trainee police officers pulled on their gym wear and tied up their running shoes to continuously run for 24 hours. Their run took place at the Essex Police College, which is based at headquarters in Chelmsford.
In total they ran more than 135 miles and raised more than £800 for charity.
