    How are Animal Control officers funded in your area. My jurisdiction wants to terminate my position because they expect to fund the position with animal licensing and citations. We all know there are no where near the amount of animals licensed as are owned. By terminating my position (and me) they are going to ask officers to take on Animal Control again. When I was hired to help them so the officers had time for other crimes. If you are interested in their  proposal here is the link to the meeting.
