These dogs are highly smart and can be trained in many different langues. There would be no reason to be affraid of them for they are a very socialabl dog. And only do there job as trained to do. To protect and serve just as our law does. thank you Chrissy N. noted

They seem to be using common sense here in training the dogs to understand English. It is all well and good that their handlers use the language these dogs were original taught to understand but should an officer go down or the dog does get loose, it is important that these dogs understand the language that would be used with them from others.
Noted with thanks, Chrissy.
