DNR hiring conservation officers


(WTHR) – The Indiana DNR Division of Law Enforcement is looking to hire more conservation officers across the state.

The DNR says they are looking for "highly motivated, outdoor-centered individuals."

Indiana Conservation Officer positions are fully recognized state police officers who enforce DNR rules and regulations as well as all other Indiana state laws.

According to the DNR, "ICOs spend the majority of their time enforcing fishing and hunting regulations, conducting marine boat patrol on Indiana’s waterways, and patrolling DNR properties to keep them safe and family friendly."

ICOs can also work in specialty areas such as scuba, K-9, search and rescue and swift water rescue.

Anyone interested should go to the DNR's website and complete the pre-screening test here.

The test must be completed by midnight February 4 to be considered for the 2019 hiring process, which starts later in the month.
