        New Jersey
 
Dear Mayor:

The New Jersey Department of Health has asked us to forward the following notice:
 
PLEASE DISTRIBUTE THIS NOTICE TO ALL APPROPRIATE MUNICPAL GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS

Pursuant to New Jersey Statutes Annotated (N.J.S.A.) 4:19-15.16a, the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) is required to distribute to municipal governments a list of persons certified as animal control officers whose certificates have been revoked, or who have been convicted of, or found civilly liable for, a violation of a provision of chapter 22 of Title 4 of the Revised Statutes, and who, therefore, are ineligible to serve as municipal animal control officers or animal cruelty investigators pursuant to N.J.S.A. 4:19-15.16b.

This notice is to inform you that the NJDOH has revoked the animal control officer (ACO) certificate #01996 issued to Christopher A. Arana pursuant to its authority set forth at N.J.S.A. 4:19-15.1 et seq. This revocation prohibits Mr. Arana from working as an ACO in New Jersey and renders him ineligible to be recertified in the future.

The current list of animal control officers whose certificates have been revoked is at the end of this message and will also be posted on the NJDOH website, http://www.state.nj.us/health/cd/izdp/revoked.shtml
