Management of Aggressive Canines for Law Enforcement is the first book of its kind to address the important topic of human/canine interactions specifically for law enforcement. With over 40 percent of households in the United States having dogs the likelihood of an officer encountering a dog during their duties is very high. Officers in tense situations need quick and effective methods to assess dog behavior and employ response options. These responses need to be within the accepted use-of-force parameters which are becoming more stringent. This book gives officers a working knowledge of dogs and suggests situation-appropriate actions to remove the dog as a threat allowing the officer to focus on the real threat, the human.
