DNR Seeking New Officers


The state of Indiana is looking for conservation officers. 

The Department of Natural Resources’ law enforcement division says it needs “highly motivated, outdoor-centered individuals” to fill Conservation Officer positions across the state.

In a release, the DNR says conservation officers comprise Indiana’s oldest state law enforcement agency.

They spend much of their time enforcing fishing and hunting regulations, conducting marine boat patrols on Indiana’s waterways, and patrolling DNR properties to keep them safe and family-friendly.

The agency says conservation officers also engage in specialty areas, including scuba, K-9, search and rescue, water rescue, and many more.

Interested persons should go to on.IN.gov/dnrlaw and complete the pre-screening test by midnight June 3.

Applicants must be a United States citizen and at least 21 years old by Oct. 30.

You also must pass physical fitness requirements.
