My experience is not in the direct animal control field but instead in cruelty investigations. I am a volunteer with the Schenectady county SPCA in upstate ny. Under nys law we are peace officers able to make arrests for any and all offenses not just animal related ones. We are able to carry firearms on and off duty, use force to effect arrests, as well as apply for and execute warrants. Unlike most others on here we drive crown Victoria police interceptors not specialized animal transport vehicles.

I'm sure the other people on here will be able to give an overview of ACO positions and departments in the US.
