Webinar - Creating an Animal Abuse Task Force: How Law Enforcement Can Work with Local Resources to Investigate and Prosecute Crimes

Over the past 30 years, researchers and professionals in a variety of human services and animal welfare disciplines have established significant correlations between animal abuse, child abuse and neglect, domestic violence, elder abuse, and other forms of violence. Mistreating animals is no longer seen as an isolated incident that can be ignored; it is often an indicator or predictor of crime and a “red flag” warning sign that other family members in the household may not be safe.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) is a key partner of law enforcement in resolving cases regarding missing and exploited children, including cases related to child pornography (CP).
