Classroom topics will focus on the legal and ethical use of force and discussion will be made on teh most recent 7th Circuit Court of Appeals rulings on K-9 use of force, as well as criminal and civil liability involving K-9s.  Reality based training will then reinforce classroom lecture to ensure the decision makin gprocess of utilizing a K-9 in an apprehension setting is controlled, reasonable, tactical, legal, and ethical.
