Jennifer R. Edwards, Esq and Colorado Senator David Balmer discuss the impetus, evolution, and filing of Colorado bill SB 226, entitled The Dog Protection Act which requires police training for dog encounters. The bill codifies a general requirement that owners be allowed to put their dogs out of harms way before police intervention. Ms. Edwards discusses some of the police dog shooting cases she has been involved in, and Senator Balmer acknowledges the need for police training. They both talk about the bipartisan effort involved in getting the bill introduced and hopefully passed.
