Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas has ordered New Orleans officers to stop using police dogs to arrest people.

A U.S. Justice Department study has found problems with the K-9 arrest division that require training to correct.

Serpas says that the city's drug and bomb detection dogs can keep working.

He says the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office has agreed to bring its arrest dogs if they are needed in New Orleans.
