1 PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT DIRECTIVE 4.8 Issued Date: Effective Date: Updated Date: SUBJECT: CANINE PATROL 1. POLICY A. Use of a canine in effecting an arrest constitutes either an actual or implied use of force. Therefore, police canine handlers and their supervisors will be fully aware of all facts and circumstances surrounding an incident before the decision is made to use a canine for other than deterrent or control purposes. B. Police dogs are tools that canine officers may use to effect an arrest when physical resistance to that arrest is met by the officer. Police officers may not use any more force than is necessary to overcome the resistance that is met. C. All dogs will be kept on lead, per City ordinance, except in the course of building or field searches, or when warranted and justified for the apprehension of a fleeing criminal suspect or to prevent injury to the officer or another person. *1 NOTE: When off-leash, the handler should make all reasonable efforts to remain at a readable working distance to ensure the police dog obeys verbal commands given by the handler. 2. USE OF CANINES A. The use of canine patrol is authorized for the following: 1. To deter criminal activity and to assist in the prevention and detection of crime. 2. To effect the arrest or prevent the escape of a person whom the police officer has probable cause to believe has committed a felony. 3. To protect the officer or another person(s) from bodily injury. DIRECTIVE 4.8-1

2 4. To search buildings where a possible unlawful entry is indicated or detected, or where a suspect may be hiding when such buildings are reasonably believed to be clear of innocent persons, and after clear warning by police is given prior to deployment of the dog. When the services of a canine team are anticipated for a search, every effort will be made by the first police officers on the scene to avoid contamination of the area with human scent by preventing any unnecessary persons from entering the area, including police officers. *1 NOTE: ANY police personnel requesting the services of a canine team will be responsible to ensure that ALL necessary information, regardless of the significance, is given to the canine handler. This will allow the handler to make an informed decision as to whether the use of a canine is warranted based on that information, as well as how the canine will be utilized and deployed. a. District supervisors will respond to assignments of this nature. In the event a canine team is not available and will not be available in a reasonable amount of time, the supervisor on the scene will ensure a building search is conducted by district patrol personnel. 5. To track suspects, lost or missing persons, hidden implements of crime(s) or other contraband. 6. Narcotic detection canines may be utilized to assist in the search for hidden narcotics including vehicle searches when appropriate as well as other locations. This service is usually done with the benefit of a Search and Seizure Warrant. *1 7. Explosive detection canines should be utilized for the detection of explosives in a hidden area of a building or vehicle, bomb sweeps for visiting VIPs, and special event sites. When a device is found, ensure that all search operations are immediately terminated. Further searches will be conducted by Bomb Disposal personnel. When an explosive canine team indicates (finds) an explosive, the scene will be secured and the Bomb Disposal Unit will be notified. *1 NOTE: Patrol Supervisors may utilize an explosive detection K-9 to search only specifically identified threat areas within buildings (e.g., locker room, garage). Canines are NOT to be utilized to investigate items or packages that have already been deemed as suspect in nature. Only the Bomb Disposal Unit will clear suspect items. 8. Cadaver detection canines will be utilized to detect hidden or decaying bodies as a result of a homicide, missing person, or catastrophic event. B. Use of canine patrols to control access to any facility will only be upon approval of a Captain and above. DIRECTIVE 4.8-2

A Complaint or Incident Report (75-48) will be prepared and submitted through channels to the Commanding Officer, Canine Unit, describing the incident. 4. Maintain their assigned canine at a high level of proficiency and peak physical condition. 5.
