I was just wondering what you have to go through to be a canine officer which i want to be. do you have to go through all of the things a normal officer has to go through, and do you get to work with a dog right when u get accepted? Is it easier to get accepted as a canine officer than a normal one? I know that we need more police officers but do yuo need more canine officers or is there one in every city?

All DRP canine officers are police officers - there is no distinction during recruitment and training. Special training is available to officers when they become members of the Canine Unit. How many and how often officers enter that unit depends on the needs of the Service.
