Warrants for Animal Law Enforcement Officers

March 1, 2023 ‐ Virtual

Learn some of the “in’s & out’s” of warrants…

Since Animal Law Enforcement Officers are often not trained in writing affidavits and preparing warrants, they are usually intimidated by the word “warrant.” This class is designed to alleviate that intimidation and show officers the step by step process of warrant preparation, executing the warrant and maintaining proper chain of custody with “living” evidence (animals).  This training will give officers an understanding of the 4th Amendment and provide an understanding of how warrants can be overturned for mistakes and oversights. Officers will be shown how to effectively write search warrants, administrative warrants and arrest warrants.  Through case examples we will discuss and show how to establish probable cause in general neglect situations, animal hoarding complaints, caught on video scenarios, abandoned animal calls, cockfighting and information received from veterinarians.   Officer Todd Stosuy has written hundreds of successful warrants in his career and wants to empower other Animal Law Enforcement Officers to assist animals and people in their communities.
