Our Kinston Police Department Animal Control Officers enforce laws concerning the care and treatment of animals, protect and rescue domesticated animals, and maintains public health standards. We currently have one ACO within the organization. Our ACO works Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm. When the ACO isn't on-duty, a KPD officer assists with animal control calls within the city limits. We are currently in the process of hiring an additional ACO, which will assist with 7-day coverage from 6am-6pm.
For emergencies regarding an animal, please call 911, for all non-emergency situations regarding an animal, we request the public to call the non-emergency number at (252) 559-6118.
