Law Enforcement

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service law enforcement officers have a wide variety of duties and responsibilities. Officers help visitors understand and obey wildlife protection laws. They work closely with state and local government offices to enforce federal, state and refuge hunting regulations that protect migratory birds and other game species from illegal take and preserve legitimate hunting opportunities. Some other duties include patrolling closed areas or Wilderness areas, maintaining relationships with neighboring landowners, maintaining refuge boundaries and participating in public events related to refuge issues. 

Law enforcement issues should be referred to the refuge Law Enforcement Officer at 307-870-6723. Game violations can be reported to the local Wyoming Game and Fish Department warden or anonymously to the WGFD tip hotline at 877-WGFD-TIP (877-943-3847) or 307-777-4330 or the FWS tip hotline at 1-844-FWS-TIPS (1-844-397-8477). Any other questions or violations can be reported to the Arapaho Headquarters Office 970-723-8202.
