The City of Spearfish Animal Control Division is maintained by the Police Department with one officer. Duties consist of enforcing city animal ordinances and parking regulations. Up until the year 2001 the ACO only performed these tasks. Now the ACO is a certified Law Enforcement Officer with all the powers of arrest, just like one of the officers from the Patrol Division. Along with traditional duties the ACO assists the Patrol Division whenever they are need of additional man power.
