Animal cruelty investigation training offered

Posted: April 02, 2013

The Humane Society of the United States will be offering a one-day seminar for area law enforcement on animal cruelty investigations, the organization announced.

The training, through the affiliated Humane Society University, will be on Wednesday at the New Castle County Police Southern Headquarters in Middletown, Del.

The course will include information on drafting arrest and search warrants, preparing for prosecution and testifying in court.

Animal cruelty laws, including those for dog fighting, are on the books in all 50 states, but are often a low priority for prosecutors, according to the group.
