Typically three types of dogs are used as full-service police dogs. The police dogs are usually as follows: the traditional German Shepard, the popular Belgium Malinois. Occasionally police agencies may use a Labrador/Receiver for narcotics/explosive detection and bloodhounds for tracking. Even then there is always an exception to the rule and the police agency may have a dog not mentioned.
A full-service police dog is trained to do many important police functions. Of course most important, all training begins with obedience. Training is also a continuous part of the handler's responsibilities.
The Alsip Police dog, K-9 Eddie, was trained at the Cook County Sheriff's Police Canine Academy in Orland Park, Illinois. Eddie has been trained in the following fields:
- Narcotics Detection
- Article Searches
- Building/Area Searches
- Suspect Apprehension
K-9 Eddie has already proven to be an asset to the department. If you see our K-9 handler, Officer Rezny on duty, feel free to ask him questions. If a K-9 handler currently has his dog outside the vehicle, please keep your distance from the K-9 unit and DO NOT PET the dog without the handlers consent.
