This appears to be an old post/question but I will respond.
In the state of Alabama, there are a few animal control officers that are affiliated with law enforcement but are not sworn police officers.
Most are shelter or Public Works employees. In Jefferson County, Alabama I am one of 3 animal control officers that are employed by law enforcement.
