Since February of 1982 the Animal Control Officer has been ACO Bobby Durrer. That is 24 years (168 in dog years). He single-handedly investigates over 1200 calls for service each year. Animal Control has a second CSO (Community Service Officer) trained to assist Officer Durrer and do ACO duties if he is on vacation. The CSO works the same hours (this slot is currently vacant). Animal Control has one ACO equipped truck.
