Take Down Training

Take Down Training

 

Back in 1987, I did a self assignment for the book, Calgary: A Year in Focus. I went for a ride along with the Calgary Police Service, Canine Unit. I spent the day with the unit photographing the team in their work.

Late in the day, we found ourselves at one of the impound lots for a little hide and seek. The “perp” was wearing a thickly padded suit. I recall the dog in the photo was fairly new to the unit and was muzzled ensure the safety of the volunteer perpetrator. Earlier we had practiced a similar take down in an unused warehouse space, which was unfortunately too dark to photograph.

Like any team, training and practice is a regular part of the routine. The dogs are asked to enter many unusual location during the course of their duties. The training ensures that they are able cope with the strenuous action.
