Tararua District Coun­cil, An­i­mal Con­trol Of­fi­cer, Kevin Jensen, was of­fi­cially recog­nised for his years of ser­vice to an­i­mal con­trol, at the re­cent New Zealand In­sti­tute of An­i­mal Man­age­ment (NZIAM) Na­tional Con­fer­ence in Welling­ton.

A val­ued mem­ber of staff at Tararua District Coun­cil, Kevin re­ceived his medal for 14 years' ser­vice.

Fel­low worker and an­i­mal con­trol of­fi­cer, Elaine Ver­meer says Kevin is some­one who is ded­i­cated to his job, which at times can be very busy and stress­ful.

"Iove learnt a lot from Kevin since I be­gan work­ing with him, heos hard­work­ing, down to earth and loves an­i­mals, plus heos got a great sense of hu­mour," says Elaine.

Craig Lunn, Tararua District Coun­cil, Man­ager Reg­u­la­tory Ser­vices says Kevin ab­so­lutely loves dogs and is pas­sion­ate about work­ing with dog own­ers to im­prove pub­lic safety".

''Itos great to see Kevin recog­nised by his in­sti­tute for his long and ded­i­cated ser­vice to the com­mu­nity,'' he said.
