Indiana Conservation Officers to host recruiting event in Whitley County

WHITLEY CO. – Anyone interested in becoming an Indiana Conservation Officer is encouraged to attend one of two identical recruiting events that DNR Law Enforcement’s District 2 will host on Saturday morning, May 21, and Tuesday evening, May 24 at district headquarters in Columbia City.

The same material will be covered at each event, starting at 9 a.m. on May 21 and 6 p.m. on May 24, respectively. The address is 1353 S. Governors Dr., Columbia City 46725

District 2 includes Adams, Allen, Dekalb, Huntington, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, Wells, and Whitley counties.

Each event will cover the duties of a conservation officer, the competitive hiring process, preparation for the written exam, preparation for core values training, and physical agility testing requirements.
