Indiana Conservation Officers to host recruiting events in Owen/Greene counties

UNDATED – Anyone interested in becoming an Indiana Conservation Officer is encouraged to attend one of two recruiting events, hosted by DNR Law Enforcement’s District 5 on Monday, May 24, and Thursday, June 3. The same material will be presented at each event.

The event on May 24 will take place at the Goose Pond Fish & Wildlife Area Visitors Center at 6 p.m. at 13540 West County Road 400 South in Linton.

The event on June 3 will take place at Canyon Inn in the Sycamore Room at McCormick’s Creek State Park at 250 McCromich Creek Road in Spencers at noon. The gate fee will be waived to those attending this event.

District 5 includes Parke, Owen, Vermillion, Putnam, Vigo, Clay, Greene, and Sullivan counties.

A total of five positions within District 5 are expected to be filled during this hiring process – two in Parke County, two in Owen County, and one in Vermillion County.

Each event will cover critical portions of the 2021 Indiana Conservation Officer hiring process, including duties of a conservation officer/hiring process, preparation for the written exam, preparation for core values training, and physical agility testing requirements.

Participation in either recruiting event does not guarantee you a position but should provide insight into the competitive hiring process.
