Law Enforcement

Federal Wildlife Officers enforce Federal conservation laws throughout the United States and on U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service lands. Officers conduct patrols, surveillance, investigations, seizures, and arrests. Crimes Federal Wildlife Officers are involved with include natural resource violations, traffic violations, crimes against person and property, homeland security issues, and alien and drug smuggling. 

Law Enforcement Objectives are:
• To protect refuge visitors and employees from harm by others.
• To assist visitors in understanding refuge laws and the reasons for them 
• To enhance management and protection of fish and wildlife resources on refuges 
• To ensure the legally prescribed, equitable use of fish and wildlife resources on refuges 
• To obtain compliance with laws and regulations necessary for the management, and protection of refuges.

Through education and enforcement, it is the mission of the Refuge Law Enforcement program to protect employees and visitors, safeguard public facilities and equipment, and protect Service lands.
