Animal Control

The City of Larned Police Department strives to control and regulate the domestic animal population, and enforce the city’s animal control ordinances. The police department works to ensure the peace and quiet of Larned’s neighborhoods, protects public and private property, and provides a safe and healthy environment for residents and pets in the city.

Larned Police Department picks up stray animals, writes citations for ordinance violations, investigates cruelty and neglect complaints, investigates animal bites, works with animal owners to resolve barking and disturbance complaints, and makes educational presentations to civic groups, neighborhood associations, and school classes.
