Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice announced the creation of a new animal cruelty prevention unit and tip hotline earlier this week to handle animal cruelty, neglect and abuse cases.
The unit’s mission is to protect pets and defenseless animals, Rice announced in a written statement Monday.
“This newly created unit will give a voice to the victims of animal abuse, and send the message that the abuse and neglect of animals is not tolerated in Nassau County,” Rice said. “The Animal Cruelty Unit will do everything possible to ensure that those who endanger pets and other animals will face the full brunt of the criminal justice system.”
