hi everyone,
I was just curious if there are Animal Cops in Southern California. I know SFPD has them but I dont know about where I live. Would it just be easy to call the local police department and ask them? Does anyone know the requirements to be an Animal Control Officer?

There are animal regulation officers throughout every jurisdiction in So Cal. However, they are usually paid well below that of an officer. If your talking about a department like New York has, the one on the Animal Planet television show. I don't know of anything like that around Southern California. The LAPD has an animal cruelty task force made up of a few officers and detectives. They work closely with the citys animal regulation department.
