Out on the job, all officers are the same.
Or they are now.
Alabama Governor Robert Bentley signed a bill into law yesterday, stating that it’s now a crime to get in the way of a working dog.
Harassing, interfering, assaulting or injuring one of these guys is now a misdemeanor.
Interfering could include things like throwing chemicals or food on the ground to throw the dog off the trail.
Officers are happy the dogs will now have the law on their side, because often times they have contact with a suspect before an officer does.
