Law Enforcement Committee

Committee Charge

The Law Enforcement Committee promotes professionalism among fish and wildlife law enforcement officers and strives for better recognition of law enforcement as a profession by other conservation organizations and the general public. Recognizing that effective law enforcement depends on strong public support and cooperation, the committee makes recommendations on how to improve the public relations of conservation officers for the purpose of increasing public support. To help achieve these goals, the committee works to encourage conservation officers to present reports on issues and trends in conservation enforcement.

The Law Enforcement Committee also makes recommendations to the Association's Awards Committee for the annual Law Enforcement Award, which is awarded each September.
