Ambulance service now available for police dogs injured in the line of duty

SPRINGFIELD, IL - Police dogs who are injured in the line of duty in Illinois can now be taken by ambulance to a veterinary clinic.

On Tuesday, Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner signed House Bill 2661.

It allows Emergency Medical Services (EMS) professionals to transport police dogs injured in the line of duty to a veterinary clinic, provided no people require medical attention or transport at that time.

The sponsor of the bill, Rep. Carol Sente, says police dogs are on the front lines of fighting crime and as such should be treated like any other member of the police department when they are injured in the line of duty.

I never knew they were not allowed to ride in the first place.

Oy, vey, I can see the headline now!

A banger gets into an exchange with police and a stray bullet hits the K-9.

An ambulance shows up, and takes the dog, leaving the banger to bleed out on the street. Stay tuned to CNN if you have enough vomit bags...

The K-9 is, after all, a law enforcement officer.

Oh, I'm not complaining about the dog going first--he should go first. But you know how modern media is going to report the story.

I also heard stories about people with broken bones having to wait in ERs because the doctors were busy with ODs.

Hey, strap them down to a gurney and let them wait.

Deal with the people who value their health first. If the druggie dies, he dies.

Many think so. I know of no state that legal recognizes them as such.

In my state, a service dog is a service dog. Police dogs are equal to seeing eye dogs. A minor offense to assault on and very low felony to kill one. Deadly force is not justified to prevent someone from killing your police dog.

Well, in Durham we treat our K-9s as LEOs; I don't know what the statutes are, but they receive awards like LEOs, they retire like LEOs, and when they die the Department is notified that K-9 officer so-and-so has passed away, survived by his family.

By statute, maybe not; in practice....
