I put in my app for CO about a month ago. The test is sometime around the 6th of June. That position is number one on my list but I doubt that I will be lucky enough to have that as a first law enforcement job.

In Michigan its a very hard job to get. Hundreds apply for one position. And with the bad economy, not many are hired.

I've been a conservation officer for 21 years now and although my career has changed from patrol to administration I still love the job. If there is a downside it is that if you enjoy hunting and fishing you usually are working most opening days etc. That being said it is a very rewarding job and one I would encourage anyone to seek.

Hope I'm not too late for this topic.


I'm a former ACO (Animal Control Officer) but work for USFWS non LE position.  Once I get through school and the academy I'm going for the CO dream.  To my knowledge there only one female CO...I can deal be being in second place on this one.

Just this past spring, I transferred out of a USFWS LE refuge officer position into another federal land management agency.   The only drawback to the switch that I have seen, I still get to do game and fish violations, but not on the scale that I used to....

Certified LEO Park Ranger for the great state of Wyoming. I just graduated from the academy this year, but have been in parks for a while now. I'm pretty happy with my job so far.

Howdy from California (though I've already seen my name thrown out there  )  As far as I know I'm the only California Warden on PL but I do know of some of my colleagues from other agencies here.

I am a California State Park Peace Officer (Ranger) with almost two years in the field.  Such an amazing career.  I can't think of doing anything else for a living.


I have never, nor will I ever, give a damn about a pic-i-nic basket!

Marine Fisheries Conservation Law Enforcement here. I like it a lot.  Rumor has it we will be spreading in to other wildlife conservation law enforcement as well in the coming years, but who knows. Almost a year, so far.
