Florida State Statute 828.27 mandates that animal control officers successfully complete a minimum of 16 hours of training in marksmanship, equipment handling, safety and animal care, and can demonstrate proficiency in chemical immobilization of animals in accordance with guidelines prescribed in the Chemical Immobilization Operational Guide of the American Humane Association, prior to performing chemical immobilization of animals. Please note that it is FACA’s policy that only Animal Control Agency employees and Law Enforcement Officers will be trained for Chemical Immobilization by FACA and FACA Instructors. This training will not be made available to private individuals or companies without prior approval from FACA.
