Top Dogs

8/12/11-Five more trained police dogs are on the St. Louis Metropolitan Police force after receiving their diplomas during a ceremony Friday morning. They spent the past 14 weeks receiving intensified lessons in obedience, search techniques, and aggressively pursuing suspects. They'll now be moving into their new homes, which happen to be the homes of the officers they trained with and will be working with out on the streets. "The K-9 handlers are far from being done," the class instructor told the officers, many of whom had their family in attendance. "It's continuing education whether they're off-duty with the K-9...and the families supporting them you're going to have a pet at the home more times than not, but it's a policeman...it's a working dog." Dragon, Sabre, Picasso, Dax and Boss along with their handlers were presented with diplomas, and the new graduates were officially on the job. While on duty, they travel in specially-equipped patrol cars with temperature control and a "bailout button" that allows the dogs to be released if their human partner comes under attack.
