A "typical" day of work as a Wildlife Enforcement Officer might include patrolling the woodlands and waterways in an officer's assigned patrol area and contacting the constituents that engage in the Agency's regulated activities of boating, hunting and fishing. The patrols are typically done alone and in populated and remote areas at any time of the day or night and in all kinds of weather conditions from extremes in heat and humidity to below freezing. The officer is expected to detect violations of the laws and rules of the State of North Carolina, develop cases and testify in court, investigate boating and hunting incidents, and assist other law enforcement agencies as needed. An officer is also expected to provide public service education for Boating Safety and Hunter Safety certification.
A work environment that is ever changing.
