Many police officers ask fundamental questions at animal transport controls: What are the signs to identify a sick animal? How many animals are allowed to be loaded? What transportation times are allowed for which animal species? What watering systems are adequate for the animals? For this reason the TSB/AWF offers training for police officers in cooperation with Eyes on Animals (Netherlands).
Within the theoretical part we explain the legal requirements and show photographs and films of typical violations witnessed in daily operations. Subsequently we go to a highway or customs station to perform animal transport controls. The experiences show that the police officers are highly motivated after training and can successfully conduct transport controls.
