Law Enforcement

Refuge law enforcement officers have federal jurisdiction to enforce federal conservation laws throughout the United States.  Officers deal with a wide variety of crimes such as natural resource violations, traffic violations, crimes against people, crimes against property, homeland security and more. 

 Our refuge law enforcement officers protect fish, wildlife, plants, and other natural, cultural, and historical resources.    

By fostering understanding and instilling in the visiting public an appreciation of refuge resources, laws, and regulations, our law enforcement encourages voluntary compliance through education, outreach, and law enforcement actions while in a welcoming and safe environment.  Refuge law enforcement works collaboratively with law enforcement officers from other federal land management agencies, forming the SNAP Law Enforcement Team.
