When should you charge?  Is it Simple or Gross Neglect?  When does it rise to Cruelty?  Do you know?  Are you letting them slide when you should be charging them?  This presentation will examine how to make the call.  We will have interactive slides and interactive participation with a discussion about the answers.  We will explore strategies to gain compliance and the cut-off point to charge and move through the criminal justice process.


Other Upcoming Webinars with this Speaker include:




The National Law Enforcement Center on Animal Abuse was established by the National Sheriffs’ Association to provide law enforcement officers information on the realities of animal abuse and to promote their proactive involvement in the enforcement of animal abuse laws in their communities. Through our partners, the Center will serve as an information clearinghouse and forum for law enforcement on the growing problem of animal abuse and its link to other types of crimes, including violence against humans. The Center also promotes officer safety in officer-dog encounters through continuing education and training.





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.
