The Town of Highlands Dog Control Unit is comprised of two Dog Control Officers that cover the Town of Highlands and Village of Highland Falls for enforcement and sheltering stray or impounded dogs. Both officers are under the direction of Detective Randell Bailey of the Town of Highlands Police Department.

Mission Statement 
The mission of the Town of Highlands Dog Control Unit is to balance the health, safety and welfare needs of the people and dogs in the Town of Highlands. Through our mission we will educate the public about responsible companion animal ownership, aggressively investigate animal cruelty cases, provide compassion and humane care for stray, abused, and abandoned dogs in our town, give adoptable dogs a second chance at a forever home, and humanely euthanize animals when necessary and appropriate.
