The Problem of Dog-Related Incidents and Encounters
by U.S. Department of Justice

Short Description:

This booklet discusses dogs and dog bites. It is produced as a safety guide to officers and others who might have an interaction with unknown dogs. Facts about the prevalence of dog bites, reasons a dog might be aggressive, and other factors leading to or resulting from dog bites are also discussed.

From Introduction:“This guide discusses the tools, practices, and procedures that contribute to effective responses to dog-related incidents and encounters where dogs happen to be present. Primary goals include ensuring public and officer safety and considering community needs and demands. Although dog-related incidents and encounters may also be related to inhumane care and animal cruelty (including animal-hoarding situations and dog fighting), this guide does not directly address them. Each of those requires its own analysis and response. Nor does it directly address public policy issues (such as dog-breed discrimination) or departmental policies that fail to incorporate effective practices.”
