The National Law Enforcement Center on Animal Abuse was established to provide law enforcement officers information on the realities of animal abuse, and to promote their proactive involvement in the enforcement of animal abuse laws in their communities. Through our partners, the Center will serve as an information clearinghouse and forum for law enforcement on the growing problem of animal abuse, its link to other types of crimes, including violence against humans and officer-dog encounters.
NLECAA, intends to bring greater awareness to, and understanding by, our nation's law enforcement officers on the oftentimes misunderstood nature of animal abuse crimes and their link to violence against humans.
The National Coalition on Violence against Animals (NCOVAA), is an independent collective of local, State, and national organizations that focuses on crimes against animals and the relationship of these crimes to other acts of violence by animal abuse perpetrators. Join Today!
