Law Enforcement

Law enforcement is an integral part of managing the National Wildlife Refuge System. Refuge law enforcement officers are responsible for upholding federal laws and regulations that protect natural resources, the public, and employees.

These are our objectives:

  • To protect refuge visitors and employees from disturbances or harm by others. 
  • To assist visitors in understanding refuge laws, regulations, and the reasons for them. 
  • To enhance the 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 proper administration, management, and protection of the National Wildlife Refuge System. 

To report a violation, call Dale Bumpers White River National Wildlife Refuge Law Enforcement at (870) 946-5975.
