Trained police dogs are useful in so many ways and whether you’ve had a home break in and are shopping home security systems or just visited the airport you’ve probably come in contact with one more recently than you think. Here are a few of the things we bet you didn’t know police dogs do
Riot Control: There are few things better for managing a crowd than the threat of an aggressive dog, even if the animal has no intention of ever being used. Police dogs and attack dogs are different but they can both be used for crowd control.
Security Screenings: Police dogs may be trained to sniff out drugs but they’re also able to sniff out other things, too. Bet you didn’t know that gunpowder and other explosives are also on the list of things these dogs can seek out.
Searches: When it comes to a missing child or adult, police dogs are utilized often. When a senior goes missing from a nursing home or a child from a playground, police dogs are often one of the first authoritative presences allowed at the scene.
