A Queensland police dog has died in the line of duty.
PD Jeru was hit by a car while training in Springwood, Logan on Saturday night.
The young pup was running back to his enclosure after completing a training exercise in an alley, when he was hit by a passing car.
His experienced trainer rushed him to the vet but sadly Jeru couldn't be saved.
The Dog Squad will conduct a review of the incident but say Jeru's handler is experienced and greatly upset by the loss.
