 Wildlife inspectors at the GS-11 level and above must wear the appropriate collar insignia designating the officer’s grade on the uniform shirt.  Use of the collar insignia helps the public to identify supervisory and senior wildlife inspection staff (see 452 FW 1.5).   


Size: Wildlife inspectors must:

·   Use the small (3/4 inch) size collar insignia, and

·   Wear the insignia only on uniform shirts, not on outerwear or other uniform components.     


Vendor: We recommend purchasing the insignia from Leon Uniform Company.


Wildlife inspectors may find it useful to purchase two sets of insignias.
