This book is out of stock indefinitely, unable to order at this time.


Modern police officers have an impressive number of tools at their disposal, all of which take some experience to deploy properly. Of all these tools, none is more mysterious and poorly understood than the dog. And while a K9 can be useful in subduing a suspect, 90 per cent of its work involves its nose, not its teeth.

This book helps officers outside the K9 unit understand the proper use of dogs in police investigations. Stephen Mackenzie describes the different situations in which a K9 can be helpful, how the dog functions during a search, and what officers can do before and during the search to maximize the chance of success. Each chapter includes a summary of important concepts.

Perfect as an introduction to the use of K9s for new police officers or as a quick reference for experienced veterans, this book is a valuable resource for every officer.
