The GSDs intelligence and versatility have deffinitly made it the #1 choice for law enforcement. I have seen USPD's use a ton of different dogs for work but having a dog that can bite, search for drugs, track people, cadaver dogs etc all in one package makes the breed sought after for work. Plus dogs like Rin Tin Tin, Strongeheart, and Bullet from 1940's television and their prominence during WWII (Americas bonding time as a nation) made the dogs powerful symbols
