History & Makeup

The Mississippi Agricultural & Livestock Theft Bureau, (MALTB), was formed by the State Legislature in 1993, to better serve the State's agricultural community. With Agriculture being a large part of the States economy, this Bureau has been of great service.

The MALTB is made-up of a Director and nine (9) Investigators. One Investigator per MS Highway Patrol District. Each Investigator is a Certified Police Officer, and is empowered to enforce all of the laws of the State of Mississippi and arrest violators. The Investigators are also empowered to serve warrants and process emanating from any court of lawful jurisdiction.


Duties

The duties of the MALTB are to enforce all the laws of the State enacted for the purpose of preventing the theft of livestock, agricultural and aquacultural products and implements; to make investigations of violations thereof and to arrest persons violating same. The Bureau was also formed to put emphasis on enforcement of the law as to the transportation of livestock upon and over the public highways, roads and streets of the State of Mississippi. The MALTB also handles the registration of all livestock brands in the State.

The most common cases the Bureau is called on include: Livestock Theft; The Shooting of Livestock; Timber Theft; Farm Equipment Theft; Saddle and Tack Theft; and Agricultural Chemical Theft
