Description

****This class was formerly titled Animal Cruelty Investigation Level 1****

This introductory workshop on investigating animal cruelty will cover all the basics of an investigation, including, but not limited to:

  • A review of Vermont’s criminal animal cruelty statute;

  • The needed elements for a strong animal welfare criminal investigation

  • Interview and interrogation techniques

  • Report writing

  • Using expert witnesses

  • Evidence collection

  • Search warrant procedure; and

  • A review of resources available at the local, state and national level to assist in responding to incidents of animal cruelty.

This course will also review Vermont’s Cruelty Response System (CRS) and the CRS web-based case management system, Animal Tracks. The Vermont Animal Cruelty Response Coalition and the CRS were formed to facilitate cross-agency collaboration and communication in order to more effectively respond to animal cruelty complaints, with an emphasis on accountability and follow up.

Registrations are limited to qualified humane agents sponsored by their municipality or police department and law enforcement officers.
