you know, with K9 units, you'd think police departments would have a serious fratricide issue

You'd think it would become expensive after awhile.

"Lookout! Dog!"

*bang* *bang* *bang* *bang*

"Ah shit, there goes another K9 unit!"

Dogs are considered Officers under the law.

Therefore, if a dog smells something in your car it is considered probable cause becuase something obvious to an officers senses prompted the search. There was a court case a while back where someone was trying to claim they were specialized equipment and the ruling turned out that way in the wash.

Fluffy cops probably have the least ulterior motives when it comes to enforcing the law.

Not to mention they're just sewww cute

I don't know the reason they don't use dogs more, but, there should be really strict qualifications and psycological testing for officers who are trained as k9 officers.
The city here had a rouge officer who was a k -9 officer years ago, and of course that dog was an extension of that officers attitude.

Yes, police K9 units are cool.


Although you have to admit, police octopus units would be even cooler.

Well, the JBT bashers can't make the "why should the police be able to have dogs when citizens can't" argument.

Poor communcations have lead to the death of K9 units, one example was posted here a while back, K9 left the dog at the front and went around back, second arriving officer shot the K9.

That they're something you can't control that can hurt or kill someone. An officer's gun will never hurt someone as long as it stays in the holster. The animal, like all animals, can attack anyone anywhere without warning.z

People attack people without warning all the time AND you cant control them. See where this is going?

The drug K9s can alert at the handlers will. I think there are some cases thrown out for no probable cause, due to this

Define an "other canine"

Do you have any idea how many times a day a K9 dog saves an officer's life? Try searching the projects in LA without a dog and you will most likely get shot and/or killed. We had the utmost respect for the K-9 dogs/teams on LAPD. They are the closest thing to a guardian angel as you can get.

Just think of the logistics’ of Octopuses patrol, you could send 4 into a mob and detain them all.

I voted Yes on the K9

Um, all cops should have that testing and qualification. So only the sane cops get to become K9? the nutjobs are the regular cops?

Of course I live in the city where the asst. chief killed his wife then himself a couple years ago, and near the city that the chief lost his gun.
And I used to live in then near the city (DC) that had a drug and murder ring in it's police dept. "The dirty dozen."

I bet dogs are more loyal and more discilplined than most human cops.

There are various breeds of dogs used in law enforcement, not just the human-biting ones.
