Yes any trace of drugs, even a faint scent, they can track it.

Usually police will have a kaynin to help them with searching butusually it'll be a German Shepard.
Well, if the dog seems especially interested and sniffs something out, the police will check him, and if they find anything, he/she will most likely go to jail.

German Shepards are mostly police dogs it determines how aggressive they are and how trained they are
The most common guide and police dog breeds are the German Shepard and Labrador retriever.
Police use dogs which have both extreme loyalty to their owners and obedience to every command. Many herding dogs are loyal to a fault but are used to doing what they want.

They patrol the streets, apprehend criminals, and handletheir dogs as they perform tasks humans can't, such as detectingexplosives, drugs and other illegal substances.
First, they are adopted by the police when they are puppies, thenas they grow, they will undergo TRAINING, they will get used tosniffing out drugs, like officers give K-9s different substances ofdrugs for they to memorize, later they will hide a conceal SAMEsubstance in a Car, if the dog sniff it...
Yes, they do use them but not often. Unlike the Shepherd wit his excellent sense of smell the Dobermann does not and so isn't used as often. They prefer to stay near an owner unlike the Shepherd and Rottweiler that will tackle the problem head on.
They need to memorize the substances of different drugs, and trustme, there are a LOT. They also undergo different type of traininglike missing persons, tracking, attacking and defending skills fortheir officer, and many other type.

K9 units team a specially trained dog with a specially trained officer. K9 units work in many different tasks. Suspect tracking, victim location, drug and/or explosive detection are some of the duties.
Yes but they probably wouldn't be employed in riot control. Probably they'd go in for drug detection or be an assistant type - like belle in F B eyes. . probably not Yes, the Golden Retriever breed is a police dog in some cases, it is not just German Shepherds.
They would probably get in trouble for attacking a civilian if they didn't do anything and didn't have anything illegal. Or attacking an officer (who had nothing bad with him).
Police dogs are helpful to sniff out things and to comfort thosehurt and in need.
Mostly, i have heard of German shepherds, i have never seen anydifferent dogs used on their force, OH! Except for Grey hounds. Soyeah two, Hope This Helps :)
No offense to your dog but if you mean an attack police dog then no because of their short and chubby legs they cannot run fast. For a tracking dog then you have a chance as long as your dog is a puppy because it will take a lot of training. If you are really determined then you can try to train...
They search for suspects that ran, search for drugs guns and human remains and protect their human partner while on duty
jumping on criminals and biting them bite
Yes, women can work on the K-9 unit. I have never heard of a department that will not allow that. Many people are unaware of this, but the K-9 unit requires any candidates to pass a very difficult physical test. The reason being that as a K-9 officer, you will be in control of a large German shep...
They are most often given to their handler to live out the remainder of their life. some stay with the k-9 officer and some are given to adoption places so public can adopt them it does nothin it becomes a house pet
I looked it up and they are still police these are working dogs they must have a purpose even if it`s running sheep etc they say that their great for police work
It really depends on what specific field they are trained in :/
No. Huskies are bred to pull sleds, not as a loyal companion to go after criminals and sniff out drugs. Dogs that are bred to be guard dogs, like German Shepherds, are the best for this job.

Police dogs have now become very helpful to the society because there are very less chances of robbery when a police dog is around....

The first dog squad of any Government agency was for the Railway protection Force which was set up in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. It was even before the Tamil Nadu police dog squad, which claims itself to be the first of its kind in India.
Answer . My dear, you certainly don't know about large dogs because many of them can be 'crotch sniffers' for no reason whatsoever, so yes, I am pretty sure they will find the drugs, and, if they should just be crotch sniffing out of a nasty habit the drug squad knows every orifice of the body...
Assuming it's properly trained, quite a lot I'd think.
Most likely because they love dogs and want to be part of the police force i guess
retired police dogs will be protective of their owner, but it really depends on how old they are

Police Dogs bark because when you start to annoy them then they will bark at you!
Honest answer: I wouldn't advise it. The canine's handler is very likely to view it that way. As a legal matter the perpetrator would be charged with the "Destruction of Government Property."
a police horse can be ridden and carry heavy amounts whereas a dog cannot. a dog also has a keener sense of smell :)

If the police dog were just a dog, you could serve at least 4 years for animal cruelty. Since a police K9 is actually a badged police agent, you would be guilty of destroying government property, and causing the death of a police agent, and would likely serve life in prison. Addendum: Related...

"Police dog" is a job description, "husky" is a breed. . Police dogs are chosen to do certain things, which huskiesaren't known to be as good at. . They're better for that purpose. If you don't have that purpose,a husky might be just as good or even better.
Do you mean a German Shepard or an actual dog used in the police services? Really it doesn't matter because either way it depends on the dog. German Shepards are known for being great with children and protecting them from danger but I know a German Shepard that is not good with kids. Dogs in the...

Labrador Retriever can be a good police dog due to its even temperament, intelligence, strong sense of smell and quick learning ability. It can help Police in jobs like detection, rescue etc.

Question doesn't make sense. . "Police dog" is a job description. "Doberman" is a breed. . A police dog may well be a Doberman. Or an even bigger dog.
K-9's are well trained and do not harm anyone unless given the command to do so. While they are able to kill, they typically do not do more than hold those they have turned on. Police dogs are trained to hold or disable, not to kill. Though there is a small possibility that someone may be killed it...
K-9 and special victims (called sex crimes in most agencies) are very different assignments. K-9 is usually an assignment within uniformed patrol, while sex crimes investigators are usually detectives. Local agency policy would determine how one is appointed to either one.
No special subject(s). You must first be able to qualify and be hired as a police officer. If chosen for canine duty, you will be trained along with your dog at a special training school.
Their intelligence and dedication is very high. They can work several hours without giving up, most dogs tire after 'working' (tracking, sniffing etc.) after a short time, but the German Shepherds are very dedicated and tough at this
