A California Bill to end the use of police K-9s’ was introduced to the Assembly on February 13th.
This would ban the use of police k9s for criminal arrests, apprehension, and crowd control,
If you have ever come across a police k9, you know they are indeed on the job. Not looking to be pet, or handed any cookies.
In August of 2017 a group from Fidomingle was invited, and attended one of the fundraisers for the San Diego K9 unit.
And we continue to support them to this day.
While attending the event with the k9 handlers, we witnessed first hand what these amazing dogs do, and how they protect people.
So not only did we get to see these dogs in action, we learned how they protect criminals and police officers, as well as the community.
These dogs are fast, well trained, and so respected in what they do for law enforcement, keeping everyone safe.
The k9 handlers not only showed their skills, but kindly answered all questions about the dogs. It didn’t take long to convince me what a true asset they are in preventing deaths.
I would highly recommend anyone go to one of these events and see just how helpful these dogs really are.
It would be an absolute shame to pass this Bill.
Many law enforcement officials and public safety groups have spoken against the Bill….
“for every case of a dog biting someone, there are so many more where a dog took down a dangerous suspect that could have injured officers or others. Any K-9 officer will tell you that the dog that we’re partnered with has saved lives. I’ve seen dogs wrestle down suspects who had been holding handguns and knives.” says former police officer and K-9 unit member Ronald Davis to the California Globe.
