The application deadline is getting close for anyone interested in becoming a California Department of Fish and Wildlife Game Warden. October 17 is the cutoff for the next Academy. Lt. Patrick Foy says it is an opportunity that isn’t always available.
Lt Foy says good candidates have some education as well as a love of the outdoors.
There are a variety of duties for Fish and Wildlife officers.
Foy says that most law enforcement activity for wardens is around hunting and fishing.
The CDFW also responds to environmental emergencies.
The application for the game warden position is available at the web site: wildlife.ca.gov.
Foy says the application process is quick, but the screening takes quite a bit of time.
