Animal Cruelty TrainingWritten by Beatriz Reyna
Looking for signs of animal cruelty was the task for law enforcement officials.
Thursday morning, the state Humane Society teamed up with local and area law enforcement agencies to learn how to do just that.
The training also shows law enforcement how to properly investigate these cases.
The Humane Society spearheaded the training in October.
Thursday's training is the last of four that were held throughout the state.
“Law enforcement are trained and they go to the academy and they are taught to deal with two legged suspects and two legged victims we always say they really receive that background training on how to deal with animals or what constitutes animal cruelty so that is where we step in,” says Kristie Biodrowski, NE Humane Society Field Dir.
“It will be able to help our deputies work the case properly for the good of the animals and the owners. Citation is not always the end result we want to give them the chance to get the situation cleaned up or voluntarily surrender the animals so they can get the care they need,” says Lt. Dan Newton , Lincoln County Sheriff's Dept.
