Articles Archive - Police K9 / Military

This Archive includes the best of the Police/K9 articles featured on Working Dogs Cyberzine since 1996.
  • On April 4 a SDPD K9 Officer Lawrence "Skip" Cahill was acquitted of negligence charges and a possible year in jail and $20,000 fine when the jury deadlocked on the verdict. The 10-year veteran was charged with the death of his K9 of four years service, "CJ". The officer had left CJ in the patrol car in 77-degree weather for 90 minutes with the air conditioning on. Unfortunately, the air conditioning unit failed -- leading to the tragic death of Cahill's beloved K9 partner. The reason for the air conditioning failure: the system was clogged with dog hair.

The call for standards in K9 breeding, evaluation, and training increases in volume with Everett, Washington investigative reporter Scott North's incisive piece Hard-bitten.
