Kearny Police no longer taking temporary custody of stray domestic animals

Effective immediately the Kearny Police Department will no longer take temporary custody of stray domestic animals. In the past, police officers often attempted to transport loose dogs and cats to police headquarters where they were held temporarily in cages to await animal control authorities. Likewise, citizens often dropped off found dogs and cats at the Laurel Avenue police station to await reunification with their owners.

In an effort to avoid employee dog bites after receiving notice from New Jersey's Public Employees Occupational Safety and Health (PEOSH), it was decided that the police department will no longer directly provide this service. We'll be leaving the dog catching to the professionals.
