Good News of the Day:

This morning, Deputy Dante Brown was traveling through Burtonsville, MD on his way to work, when he was flagged down by a concerned resident. This resident told Deputy Brown that a dog was running in and out traffic on the busy roadway. Fearing for the dog's safety, Deputy Brown was able to coax it into his cruiser until Montgomery County Animal Services & Adoption Center arrived to take custody.

Great job to Deputy Brown in taking the time to care for this lost animal!!

Broward deputy shares a message after viral video saving dog

“I try to always tell everybody — just be that voice. Help them. Do what you can because nobody can speak for them,” Deputy Angela Laurella, Broward Sheriff's Office, said.

H/T to Officer Daniels for posting the picture.

"Nobody can speak for them," says a deputy who saved an abandoned dog in a now-viral video. "Say something when it comes to animal cruelty."

The Link Between Animal Cruelty and Human Violence | FBI: Law Enforcement Bulletin

Newly released article in the FBI – Federal Bureau of Investigation's Law Enforcement Bulletin!

The Link Between Animal Cruelty and Human Violence
By Charlie Robinson, M.A., M.S., and Victoria Clausen, M.A.

"The roles animals play in society are widespread, ranging from beloved family pets providing comfort, to law enforcement dogs tracking missing persons, to service animals providing critical assistance. Animals are part of nearly everyone’s life in some aspect. Unfortunately, as seen with children, without a voice of their own, animals are among the most vulnerable in society. This vulnerability places them at high risk for animal cruelty — intentional, harmful behavior such as neglecting or killing an animal."

When investigating claims of animal cruelty, law enforcement should be aware of the well-documented link to violence against humans and other types of violent crime.

Bravo! Agencies come together for homeless outreach. The issue of homelessness is one that requires a multi-faceted approach.

Our Homeless Outreach Team partnered up with the Houston Humane Society and conducted a ride-along to evaluate animals that belong to individuals experiencing homelessness. They met with them at their location & offered services for their dogs & cats.

4 men admit to taking part in dogfighting network that spanned MD, DC, VA and NJ

“Dogfighting is absolutely intolerable and callously subjects defenseless animals to inhumane treatment and abuse,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Raj Parekh for the Eastern District of Virginia. “We must protect and care for these animals—not cruelly turn them against each other for profit. Those who engage in this deplorable conduct will face justice to the fullest extent of the law.”

BALTIMORE (WBFF) - Four DC-area men have pleaded guilty to taking part in an interstate dogfighting network in DC, Maryland, Virginia, and New Jersey, from 2013 through 2018. They pleaded guilty to taking part in "animal-fighting ventures, involving training, transporting, breeding and dogfighting s...

Why is there no opossum emoji?! 😍

Last night, sheriff’s deputies responded to a call of a suspicious person in an area in the Meridianville community. The complainant reported a loud noise near her back porch. Upon arrival, Deputy Peter Eckerd initiated a short foot pursuit which resulted in the “suspicious subject” being located and apprehended. Deputy Eckerd counseled him about the ramifications of criminal trespassing. The mischievous four-legged subject was given a trespass warning as well as a brief “time-out” and safely release back into society.

Drug Interdiction Donkeys

The Sheriff's Office recently acquired 2 new drug sniffing donkeys.
Help us welcome the newest members of the Twin Falls County Sheriff's Office - Ruby and Havoc!

Ruby and Havoc are certified drug sniffing donkeys assigned to our Patrol Section. Known for their gentle disposition, Sheriff Carter and his wife Deneice are helping them get started with their first tour of duty with this new program.

This week Sheriff Carter will work at selecting the personnel to handle both Ruby and Havoc as they work towards our new donkey drug detection and interdiction program. Donkeys are known for the keen sense of smell, on par with German Shepherds and Blood Hounds, but they can at times also be very stubborn.

Please join us in welcoming these two newest members of the Sheriff's Office!

Unicorn Seized by BCSO Mounted Patrol

In a daring early morning operation, BCSO’s Organized Crime and Mounted Patrol Units raided a cartel drug lab hidden in the mountains off of Green Mountain Road in Northern Bexar County. In addition to drugs, guns, and cash, investigators rescued a unicorn which appears to have been smuggled into the country illegally by the infamous “Los Alacranes” drug cartel. Sheriff Salazar said the unicorn may be converted to agency use with the BCSO Mounted Patrol. Sheriff Salazar said of the seized animal “We are fortunate to have rescued this unicorn, nicknamed “April”, from these foolish criminals on this 1st day of April.”

From Detroit Pit Crew Rescue, they are one of the best! Please vote for DPD Officer Eric McCombs to win!! 🐾TIME TO VOTE🐾 Smith is one of the many dogs who has benefitted from DPD Officer McCombs passion for poor dogs that need a helping hand. Smith was rescued from the streets of Detroit in horrible condition with significant injuries to his paws which made it necessary for him to spend 5 days at an emergency Veterinary hospital. Officer McCombs spent part of his Christmas holiday sitting with Smith at the Veterinary hospital, loving on him and reassuring him that his life would be better. Rescuing a dog and being a good role model doesn't end the day a dog is rescued, that's only the beginning. Please vote for Officer McCombs by clicking on https://www.collinrosememorial.org/2020finalists. **Votes can be made by each person one time per day until Friday February 6th🐾🐾
