While the program is beneficial to the dogs, it’s even more beneficial to the local police departments.

“Instead of spending $10,000 to $15,000 for a trained Belgian or GSD, they are now taking pit bulls from shelters and training them, and they are proving themselves to be amazing police and military K9′s.”

And since Pits are extremely obedient and tough, they can be trained to do almost anything officers need them to do. Many towns and cities have already adopted Pit bulls into their K9 unit fold.

Ironically, Tte only problem officers have run into is getting the dogs to be more aggressive towards people.
