Dr. Smith-Blackmore to present at the National Sheriffs Association conference in Baltimore on June 30, 2015

NCOVAA Presents Crimes Against Canines: Animal Cruelty from a NIBRS perspective

A recent decision by the FBI means animal cruelty crimes will be included in the UCR-NIBRS.  Dr. Smith-Blackmore will illustrate how law enforcement can work with a veterinarian to successfully document cases of non-accidental injuries in dogs. Cases presented will include examples of simple/gross neglect; intentional abuse and torture; organized abuse; and animal sexual abuse in dogs, the four categories of reporting.
