Nebraska State Police – Police Dogs

Nebraska State Police – Police Dogs – http://statepatrol.nebraska.gov/vnews/display.v/ART/5638ebb033051?in_archive=1

Representative questions that can be answered with this resource:

  • How long has Nebraska been using police dogs?
  • What are dual-purpose police dogs?
  • What sorts of tasks can police service dogs do?


This web page provides a nice overview of the types of jobs that police service dogs can accomplish along with a brief description of the selection and training process for dogs and their handlers. The selection of handlers includes a home visit because dogs live with their handlers when off duty. There is also a gallery of police dog photos. The Nebraska program appears to encourage public inquiry and contact information is provided at the bottom of the page.
