Animal Care & Control Officers
Animal Control Officers help owners ensure their pets are a positive addition to the community. This is done through education programs, mediating neighbour disputes, providing advice and enforcement.
Officers also patrol neighbourhoods for stray animals and return lost pets to their owners.
Animal Control Officers are sworn peace officers, giving them the ability to write tickets and lay charges that require a pet owner to appear in court.
They assist the Edmonton Police Service with aggressive or injured animals, Provincial Brand Inspectors with loose livestock and provincial Conservation Officers with wildlife inside city limits.
