    K9 Case Law

    I have an interview next week for scent K9 and was wondering if anyone had some case law I could study regarding K9 searches. Thanks for the help. I'm in southern California.

    What's "scent k9" mean?
    "The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence...
    Still, the sheepdog disturbs the sheep. He is a constant reminder that there are wolves in the land... The sheep would much rather have the sheepdog cash in his fangs, spray paint himself white, and go, “Baa."
    Until the wolf shows up. Then the entire flock tries desperately to hide behind one lonely sheepdog."

    My guess would be a drug dog ONLY .

    Not a dual purpose.

    I have discussed religion and politics over morning coffee with men who have killed people, you don't scare me.

    hmm... Things are probably different there, but around here (and most of the country) if a K9 can only look for drugs OR explosives and nothing else then it is called a SINGLE PURPOSE K9, if it can smell drugs or explosives AND track, attack and search for suspects then it's called a DUAL purpose K9.

    In an interview to be a K9 handler there aren't normally any questions regarding specific case law. It will probably have more to do with your work ethic, demeanor, how your family is going to accept a dog, if you're prepared for the LONG term responsibility of having a work dog, etc, etc.

    Your question is kinda too broad to answer. Your best bet is to catch a K9 guy in your area and grill 'em. : )

    Good luck!

    Thanks fellas. The department went to some new ridiculous selection process for coveted jobs. The description for the position is canine scent investigator (insert joke here). Basically they cover bombs, guns, etc. I was looking for case law regarding different searches regarding canine. Found a ton by just using google. Thanks.
