    The Kentucky Horse Council will host it's annual Livestock Investigation Training: Level 1 from September 20-22, 2021 in Lexington, KY. This course is offered to Animal Control Officers, Sheriffs, and other Kentucky law enforcement officials and prosecutors throughout the Commonwealth.

    Because of the confidential nature of the material presented in the class, enrollment is restricted to law enforcement officers; prosecutors and judges; animal control officers, humane investigators and veterinarians employed or contracted with a government agency (sheriff's, police, health department, etc.). 

    Attendees will learn how to handle horses and cattle, assess body condition score in both species, identify situations that need intervention, and apply Kentucky statutes to animal-associated court cases. Attendees also practice handling and evaluating live horses and cattle, as well as examining Kentucky statutes and enforcement procedures. 

    Limited scholarship funding is available for Kentucky law enforcement officials; please contact the KHC office to inquire about scholarship availability.

    A hard-copy registration form is available here
