Police dogs are in line to receive faster care when they get injured on the job. A bill signed by Governor Bruce Rauner will allow EMS crews to put a police dog in an ambulance for transport to a veterinary hospital. Illinois State Police Trooper Justin Royer says it will allow for speedy care in case his partner was ever injured on the job.


The bill does set precedence for humans to be transported first for emergency care if needed.
