Conservation Officers enforce all laws including state and federal fish and wildlife rules. While investigating crimes as important as murder cases, conservation officers primarily focus on natural resource, boating, off road vehicle and snowmobile rules and regulations. Conservation officers are also involved with water search and recovery operations, missing persons searches and are expected to operate boats, ATVs and snowmobiles. Officers also educate the public by teaching outdoor education courses such as Hunter Education, Boater Education and Snowmobile Education classes.
