“The dogs are an inseparable part of our unit, and we regard them as combatants for all intents and purposes,” said Sergeant Felix, “Combatants who risk their lives every day to save our lives and the lives of civilians in the places where we operate.”

In the Israel Police, dogs are at the forefront of security activity, specializing in various fields, from the discovery of drugs, weapons and explosives, to policing and patrols, and locating missing persons.
