Animal Protection Unit

The Animal Protection Unit (APU) assists in the investigation and prosecution of all crimes involving animals. The Unit reviews warrant requests pertaining to animal cruelty and animal fighting. The APU also evaluates the criminal aspects of animals injured during the commission of other crimes such as home invasion and domestic violence. All of the Unit's cases are vertically prosecuted (the same Assistant Prosecuting Attorney handles all stages of the prosecution) whenever possible.
