A new law will turn over enforcement of New Jersey’s animal-cruelty laws to county prosecutors and municipal police departments.

In the past, animal cruelty cases were handled by the New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the county SPCAs.

In the months leading up to the change, police departments were hustling to appoint humane law enforcement officers to develop training for those officers.
