Some of them do; no breed has 100% qualifiers. IIRC, they were developed for such work by crossing as many as 20 breeds of dogs, including Airedales, Giant and Standard Schnauzers, Newfoundlands, Rottweilers and Caucasian Ovtcharka. They were created and bred by the Soviet government’s Red Star Kennels for use in their military and police departments.

The Black Russian Terrier that is called sometimes the Stalin's dog is a working type of dog developed to serve as guard and police dog. The character and temperament of the Black Russian Terrier suits this purpose very well. The Black Russian Terrier is a calm, confident, courageous and self-assured dog. He is highly intelligent and adapts well to training. He is alert and responsive, instinctively protective, determined, fearless, deeply loyal to family, is aloof and therefore does not relish intrusion by strangers into his personal space.
The Black Russian Terrier was initially bred as a working dog and it has a very strong work ethic. It really needs a job to do in order to be happy! Early training is a must and the Russian Black Terrier is very responsive to firm and consistent training. They perform very well at Obedience competitions and in dog sports. They have a low-shedding coat that needs grooming several times a week. This dog needs lots of exercise and may become destructive if it does not have a chance to work.

Yes they do. Best Police Dog in my opinion is the German Shepherd.

Don't be fooled by this dog’s good boy appearance. The Black Russian Terrier may be sweet mannered with his family but it’s still a fearless guardian like he was when patrolling Stalin’s Siberian camps - the role he was bred for by the Soviet Army.
This dog is by its nature extremely suspicious of strangers and it will begin to show its protective instincts from a very young age. These instincts can sometimes lead to uncontrollable, unruly behavior if left unchecked in its earliest rearing, and is not given the training that this dog really needs. Black Russian Terrier puppies are very quick to learn, and they should be treated with a tender but firmly.
The Black Russian Terrier is not a guard dog in the traditional sense but it can become such a dog in various situations. When it perceives a threat the Black Russian Terrier may not bark or growl but after a moment of stillness start an instant attack.
