The COPS Training Portal is pleased to announce the availability of a new online resource, Police & Dog Encounters: Tactical Strategies and Effective Tools to Keep Our Communities Safe and Humane. This 5-part video series is the product of a collaborative partnership between the National Canine Research Council, Safe Humane Chicago and the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office).
These roll call videos, along with the companion publication The Problem of Dog-Related Incidents and Encounters, discuss tools, practices, and procedures that contribute to effective responses to dog-related incidents and encounters where dogs are present. The primary goals include ensuring public and officer safety and considering community needs and demands.
Each video in the series is available in English and Spanish, and may be accessed via the COPS Training Portal in two ways: played directly through your logged-in COPS Training Portal user account; and/or downloaded, saved and played offline, directly from your device.
The target audience for the training videos is sworn law enforcement officers of all ranks and positions.
