Louie the police dog from the Australian Federal Police's K9 unit, has today been presented with a fancy new collar and a certificate of commendation for his excellent contribution to stopping crime.

The award was presented to Louie upon his retirement by federal minister for justice Michael Keenan at a ceremony in Brisbane. It was windy, but Louie was very well behaved during the ceremony.

"Louie is one of the AFP's first and most successful canines, having prevented nearly $20 million worth of drugs from hitting our streets, and seizing almost $2.5 million in cash," Keenan said in a statement.

"I'm very pleased to be able to commend Louie after a very dedicated eight years of service to the Australian Federal Police," said Keenan. "The statistics that he has achieved in his career is a testament to how effective our dogs are."
