Where The First K9 Units Were Implemented

Few people know this, but in the United States, the first K9 Units for police forces was in New York in 1907. This was one of the most important moments in the history of canines working alongside the police, as it would usher in an era where these units became the norm for moderate sized precincts to have. New Jersey is also credited with being the first to allow K9 units to get started in certain cities, but this actually would come a short time after New York first allowed their own units to get started and training together. Now these units can be found in almost every town and city across the United States, which is a testament to how much of an impact these dogs have had on crime solving and prevention over the past 100+ years.
