Can a police dog kill a bad guy?

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 is highly unlikely.

What happens if you kill a police dog?

The police would arrest you and send you to jail for ten years or more because it is against the law to kill anybody, dog or human, that is involved in law enforcement.
Killing or harming a police dog is a crime.

A police dog is considered a police officer, despite not being human. Therefore by harming a police dog you are effectively harming a police officer in the eyes of the law.

Police dogs are also very expensive to train and maintain. So not only would you be harming a police asset but you would also be angering the national treasury and taxpayers for wasting their money.

Kicking or punching a police dog is a crime, unless the dog attacked for no reason, then it is self defence and acceptable. Otherwise you'll be jailed for harming the police dog.

Killing a police dog, unless in self defence (except where the dog was set upon you by police) will also result in jail.

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 people try to hide drugs and you really don't want to go down that road!

Where were Police dogs invented?

Hi. In 1888, the first police dog was used in England and I am just fascinated as to the first case to which a police dog was assigned. The London Metropolitan Police Force first used two bloodhounds to track suspects by their scent as part of the Jack the Ripper investigation. The Ripper was never caught, but the use of dogs as part of the Met continued.

How many years in jail can you get from killing a police dog?

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 to this, while I served in the Army in Germany in 1984, it was common for the Military Police (MPs), to bring drug dogs through the units. The MPs would arrive with their dogs, clear the unit, and while we stood in formation outside, walk the dogs from room to room. It was common for service members (SMs) who were holding illegal drugs to drop different substances on the floor on their way out the door; ground coffee was the most common and seemed to be the most effective. On one occasion, a soldier from a different platoon than mine took the extra step of adding rat poison to the grounds, hoping it would make the dog ill and be even more effective. It had an affect.

As the dog entered the unit, as always, his nose went immediately to the floor. He must have huffed in a huge amount, because he made it about three more steps into the unit and collapsed in seizures. The MP was frantic. He scooped up the dog and ran for the medic station in the building across the street from our unit. The dog died, I suspect, on the way across the street.

The investigation was quick and the SM was identified. He was arrested and charged with murder. You see? the dog was a service member, actually holding the rank of corporal. The SM was court marshaled and convicted. He was quickly sentenced, and is still serving his sentence at Leavenworth Kansas...natural life.

What would the police do if you reported your dog stolen?

Although I am sure there are many dog lovers in the police force they may take a report from you, but aren't capable of spending time on looking for your dog as they are too busy fighting crime. The best thing you can do: * Put a picture of your dog in vets offices in the vicinity of where you live and also in the newspapers. * Every single day check out the Animal Shelters and ASPCA PERSONALLY to see if you dog has been found. Sometimes the shelters and ASPCA are too busy to check on all dogs if you simply phone in. * If your dog has ID on their collar or a chip inserted into their ear or neck it's a possibility that you will be notified should the dog turn up at a shelter or ASPCA. * Put signs up in stores in the vicinity of your home and on lamp standards with a picture of your dog. Also offer a reward (don't say how much) and that will often either bring the thief to your door (with the promise of money) or people will really keep an eye out for your dog. Personally, if I found your dog I couldn't take the reward. * I live just outside of Vancouver, B.C., and we have a lot of people on drugs here and many of them will steal dogs from the yard or even out of cars and sell them for money for drugs. This has grown into a great problem here. * Keep calling your dog every so often and check out the areas you went for walks. Talk to neighbors and ask them to keep an eye out for your dog. I wish you good luck!
