    From dogs and cats to wildlife and livestock, law enforcement personnel often encounter animals on a weekly, if not daily basis. The challenges of carrying out law enforcement duties when there is an animal component can be challenging, stressful and dangerous. Understanding things like animal behavior and body language, as well as various control techniques can make these instances safer and allow law enforcement to carry out the task at hand. Whether the assigned call for duty is directly related to the animal or the animal is peripheral, understanding some basic animal handling techniques and animal behavior can be the difference between closing out a call and moving on to the next or ending up in the emergency room.

    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.
