The Romanian police have established an Animal Protection Unit (The General Police Inspectorate for Animal Protection, or IGPPA). IGPPA is an operational structure that undertakes actions and projects for the purpose of protecting the animals and wildlife cynergetic resources in Romania.
The goals of IGPPA include protecting the rights of veterinarians and veterinary clinics, seen as legally formed entities, which might sustain abuse by authorized parties in charge of supervision and control. The IGPPA will function within the district inspectorates and local police sections of every town and city.
Officers, chief officers, inspectors, commissars and chief commissars will all work within these units.
