Dover, DE - Wednesday, July 9, 2014, marked the swearing-in date for seven Animal Control Officers (ACO) working in Kent County, Delaware.

Levy Court President P. Brooks Banta, administered the Oath of Office to the seven ACO’s.

“The work that you will be doing in this job is very important to the citizens of Kent County,” President Banta told the new ACO’s. “Therefore, keep in mind as you go about performing your job daily, that you must maintain and display a high level of professionalism, as you work on behalf of the constitutions of Kent County and First State Animal Center,” said President Banta.

The ACO’s will be responsible for the humane treatment and handling of stray dogs and/or lost dogs, captured and detained as a result of a citizen’s call for concern. Each ACO took the Oath of Office acknowledging that the powers of the office flow from the people whom they are privileged to represent.
