You are on a call and you find a lemur in a bathroom or venomous snakes behind a locked door. What do you do? What should you do? Is it your problem or some nameless federal agency’s problem? Exotics are everyone’s problem and the trade in them is illegal. We will explore how to make an exotic criminal case that will be successful. We will examine wildlife laws, animal cruelty laws, and other strategic laws to bring traffickers to justice.

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.
The National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) is one of the largest associations of law enforcement professionals in the United States, representing more than 3,000 elected sheriffs across the nation, and a total membership of more than 20,000. NSA is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising the level of professionalism among sheriffs, their deputies, and others in the field of criminal justice and public safety. Throughout its seventy-seven year history, NSA has served as an information clearinghouse for sheriffs, deputies, chiefs of police, other law enforcement professionals, state governments and the federal government.
