The training academy for enforcement agents beginning in December will cover boating laws, state and federal wildlife fisheries laws and general law enforcement work, according to the LDWF.
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries will hold a training academy for enforcement agents starting in December to fill field office vacancies throughout the state in 2014, according to a press release.
“An LDWF enforcement agent has a tremendous responsibility, protecting Louisiana’s rich natural resources, and those who enjoy those resources, whether in the field or on the water,” said LDWF Secretary Robert Barham. “And those responsibilities extend to response efforts during natural disasters when citizens need assistance in areas impacted.”
At the academy, which is housed in the Waddill Outdoor Education Center in Baton Rouge, cadets will train to enforce the state’s recreational boating laws, state and federal wildlife fisheries laws and general law enforcement work, according to a press release.
Successful completion of six months of intensive physical and academic training is required to graduate, the release states.
Interested applicants can apply online through the Department of Civil Service website and must complete the LEAPS test to qualify for consideration.
