Thank you for your time in advance. I am asking you to please make it mandatory in your state to educate and train our local police to handle our domestic animals in a non-lethal manner. The abuse and killing of thousands of loving family pets a year due to lack of education and training of our local police departments is going unpunished and ignored by our legal system. Our families once honored and respected police to serve and protect us but the abuse of power and brutal murder of our family pets is going unheard and children, the future adults, are the very ones who are being affected the most by the actions of police.

Our poor animals are inhumanely handled and killed every day by police and our children especially do not understand this brutal crime. Animals did not ask for this cruel ending for acting like animals and we the people are being betrayed by government paid employees, that we once trusted to serve and protect our families. If every state would come together and make this training a law, the honor and respect for our local police could be restored as we the people could again unite to support and honor our once heroes.

"Evil only prevails when good men do nothing." Please hear our voices and help us save our family pets and educate government workers so we as citizens of our states may stand united together to serve and protect each other and support the local police departments.

Thank you again for hearing our concerns. We are the voices of the voiceless, our children and our pets that we love as our family members.

Please make it mandatory nation wide to train police departments in handling animals both domestic & wildlife. Thank you
I especially encourage this training for police to be able to handle legs compassionately. Pets don't know law enforcement, they see someone they don't know coming on their family property and some many go in defense attack mode to protect their family, which is completely natural. Please train our police officers to be able to handle coming in contact with animals and not hurt them.
As a certified animal control officer / cruelty investigator, I understand that the technical training I have received has made me a MUCH better technician since the majority of us are not armed. In Puerto Rico we are 256 trained and certified ACO/CIs of which presently 35 are armed officers of the law. WE are all taught to be patient, learn to be cunning and those in the police departments and organizations who can afford. it use equipment. We have learned to be compassionate when capturing an animal so as not to increase it's suffering.
