     “Fruit of the poisonous tree” is a legal metaphor for a concept with significant implications for animal control and enforcement officers. This seminar will review critical evidence identification for animal cruelty cases (including best practices for writing reports), and how to document that evidence in accordance with the 4th amendment. The seminar will discuss how to assess exigency, urgency, and tips for deciding the best course of action for a successful case outcome.

    The National Animal Care & Control Association (NACA) was formed in 1978 for the express purpose of assisting its members to perform their duties in a professional manner. We believe only carefully selected and properly trained animal control personnel can correct community problems resulting from irresponsible animal ownership. NACA’s purpose is to preserve the Human/Animal Bond by insisting on responsible animal ownership.





    Founded in 1954, the Humane Society of the United States and its affiliates around the globe fight the big fights to end suffering for all animals. Together with millions of supporters, the HSUS takes on puppy mills, factory farms, trophy hunts, animal testing and other cruel industries, and together with its affiliates, rescues and provides direct care for over 100,000 animals every year. The HSUS works on reforming corporate policy, improving and enforcing laws and elevating public awareness on animal issues.
