Victory

I am happy to announce because of each and every one of you that have signed this petition I finally got to sit down with the Sheriff's Administrative Assistant on August 2, 2012 to move forward to address all issues in the community with our loving canines. Because of your support we made this possible and the Sheriff had a couple of topics of concern that I had on my list that I wanted to cover. We addressed the use of lethal force, plans are underway to work with Humane Society on Public Service Announcements for TV and radio to bring awareness on safety for our pets and the responsibility of each and every pet owner in order to keep our pets safe. Items of concern to keep your pet safe, healthy, and socialized in dog parks that this community has one just opened a month ago where we have 2 dog parks to bring our dogs to exercise and meet other dogs. A dog that has a good diet, exercise, and training is less likely to become aggressive, thank you all from the bottom of my heart and for those that are having this problem in your community please contact your Sheriff Department to meet with the Administration staff to bring some ideas to work with their police department to make your community safe for your loving canines and neighbors in your community and please do not give up when I began I thought it would be a real tough battle but we gained ground. Thanks to change.org that help make a difference in our community, at this point please do not email or call the Monroe County Sheriff's office because they have heard your voices. The Sheriff said he had your signatures on his desk with this petition so thank you all you made a difference in Rochester, New York and I will never forget to pass it forward to help other communities with the same issues. Feel free to contact me. Thank you all.

This is important as to bring more awareness to the community, the Sheriff Department, Humane Society, and K9 Partners are working together as a intiative in bring safety to our community in dealing with canines.

      K9 partners of Monroe County has recognized the Sheriff’s Office as a model for the entire State of New York when dealing with this type of training.
      Deputies learned signs and scenarios when dealing with potentially dangerous dogs. This included communication with the dog’s owner or the animal itself.
      Law enforcement officers are also getting familiar with all the different alternatives available to them, including steps that could limit the possibility for lethal force. This includes alternatives like a bite stick, a baton, flash lights, or requesting assistance from the Humane Society Officers.
      Law enforcement officers are faced with making quick decisions in sometimes chaotic and hostile environments. The training provided instructs them to be aware of all their different surroundings and to always remember the safety of individuals involved.

      Animal cruelty is wrong and I really dislike police who use firearms in cases like this. Especially due to the fact that people who need weapons for protection are weak.
