Preventing Attacks By Police Dogs
Attacks by police dogs are fortunately rare, but if you find yourself in a volatile situation involving law enforcement and their canines, it’s best to be prepared and calm. Dog bites are unpleasant in general, and a dog that is trained to apprehend suspects is likely to be especially aggressive and thorough.
Whether you’re the one being pursued or you are simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, the most important thing you can do is to stop what you’re doing and be still. Do not run and do not panic. Follow the orders of the police officers. Even if you’re innocent and confused about what’s happening, do what you are told and move slowly.
Learn how to protect yourself. When you feel confident in your abilities to manage a potentially dangerous situation, you’ll be in a much stronger position.
