(UNDATED) - The Department of Natural Resources is seeking qualified applicants to become Indiana Conservation Officers.

Indiana Conservation Officers work in the DNR's Law Enforcement division. Founded in 1911, it is Indiana's oldest state law enforcement agency. Conservation Officers enforce all state laws but concentrate their efforts on laws affecting natural resources, state properties, and recreational activities such as boating, snowmobiles, and all-terrain vehicles.

The recruiting phase ends, Nov. 30, and only those registered by that date will be considered for the recruit school that begins June 2015. To be considered, applicants must successfully complete an on-line prerequisite test at dnrlaw.IN.gov/2760.htm.

Indiana Conservation Officers are conducting recruiting events in various locations to explain the steps of the hiring process and how to prepare to be a successful candidate. Anyone interested in attending must register through the "Stay in Touch" form at the website listed.

Previously, applicants have been required to have an associate's degree or 60 credit hours toward a bachelor's degree. The application process is now open to individuals who do not meet the college requirement but have four years of continuous military service and have earned an honorable discharge.
