Man’s best friend has also become law enforcement’s closest ally in the war on drugs. Throughout the world, dogs are specially trained to use their superior sense of smell to detect the presence of illegal controlled substances. They are essential in establishing probable cause that can lead to lawful searches, arrests and convictions. These four-legged investigators are teamed with their oftentimes lifelong police companions, and given the abbreviation “K9,” and have been a major component to success of state and federal agencies in getting drugs out of communities across the United States. Many K9s are also trained to attack violent suspects on command, and in the US court system they are frequently treated with the same protections as a police officer.
This pin celebrates this relationship between dog and police, and can proudly be worn on hats, lapels, vests or gym bags.
This pin features an Antique Brass finish, and each measures 1-inch x 1.75-inches.
