In the US each small town/county has their own police department. Most suburbs (10 minutes outside a city) have their own police departments. These departments can't really afford to have specialized dogs, so they train one GSD to do everything. I've seen some departments that use hounds for tracking criminals and then a GSD or a Malanios as back up for when they actually find him/her.
