Animal Investigations Academy
About The Animal Investigations Academy
The Animal Investigations Academy (AIA) is the newest offering from the Indiana State Board of Animal Health. Developed by a former animal control officer, the Academy is intended to fill the void across Indiana for the training needs of animal control officers, animal cruelty investigators, and law enforcement officers interested in learning the laws and best practices of animal investigations. Mirroring national curriculums, the Academy will consist of three week-long courses, which will be scheduled throughout the year.
Foundational Knowledge Course
Indiana animal welfare professionals, such as animal control officers and law enforcement personnel who respond to cases involving animals, are invited to attend the inaugural Animal Investigations Academy: Foundational Knowledge course.
The five-day class will cover topics essential to managing animal investigations effectively, including: animal law, animal husbandry, investigation basics, bonding statute information, policy and procedures, and more.
The class is free to attend and is open to any Indiana professional who has a direct involvement with animal-related investigations. Pre-registration is required.
