The mission of the National Wildlife Refuge System Law Enforcement program is:
"Through Education and enforcement we protect our employees, volunteers, and visitors; safeguard the public’s investment in facilities and equipment; and protect the integrity of the habitat and the wildlife resources of the National trust resource which is the 150 million acre National Wildlife Refuge System.”
Bombay Hook is actively patrolled by a Federal Wildlife Officer whose priority enforcement activities take place on National Wildlife Refuge System lands.
Please Report all law enforcement violations to the refuge. Call 302-653 9345 or email to email@example.com. In case of an emergency call 911 or for wildlife related crimes call the state at 1-800-523-3336.
Timely reporting of crimes is important to reducing crime on the refuge. When calling in a violation please remember to provide as much information as possible including, who, persons and vehicles involved, what happened and how, and when and where the crime took place. If you have a camera available and it is safe to do so please take a picture of the event and share it with us.
