The Humane Society of Southern Arizona is proud to announce, Cruelty Investigator Mike Duffey has been appointed to serve on the newly formed National Law Enforcement Council of The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).
This council brings together outstanding current and former law enforcement officers and prosecutors from across the country to assist the HSUS in its efforts to strengthen and better enforce laws to protect animals from illegal animal cruelty.
Members of this national council were chosen for their expertise, knowledge and leadership in protecting animals from neglect, violence and crime. With a particular emphasis on animal cruelty, fighting and poaching laws, the council brings together the best in the law enforcement field to help combat animal crimes nationwide.
“Since 1999 I have known and understood there was a need for standardized reporting of animal crimes so that, at the minimum, stats can be generated to address pets’ needs” said Duffey. “I am so proud to have been selected and I am eager to address any needs the organization has and do my part in educating our communities about animal crimes.”
Member activities may include supporting state and federal legislation that strengthens animal protection laws, promoting animal protection training opportunities for local law enforcement, and raising awareness of the HSUS’s animal crimes rewards, tip lines and other resources.
As a well-seasoned investigator, speaker and lecturer, Mike Duffey is always available to address audiences on animal crimes and cruelty prevention.
