School of Hard Knocks

Record #:
The job of a wildlife officer is hard and dangerous. Chances of being killed are seven times higher than in other types of law enforcement. Over 1,000 apply for positions each year, but only 20 are chosen. Those selected undergo a rigorous sixteen-week training session at Salemburg that includes learning the basics of law enforcement, use of firearms, self-defense tactics, chase procedures, and evidence collection.
