From Georgia Department of Natural Resources
-- The Department of Natural Resources' Wildlife Resources Division (WRD) is making it easy for residents to keep up with what's going on in and around their county with a new online weekly law enforcement activity report.
Each week's report portrays a sampling of the enforcement activities occurring across the state. WRD rangers provide detailed information on natural resource illegal activity and issued citations, as well as information on local WRD events and educational programs. To view the report, visit the WRD website, www.georgiawildlife.com and click on the 'Law Enforcement' link under the 'General Info' menu.
"We've been posting the weekly report online for a little over a month now, and interest from the general public is steadily increasing," says WRD chief of law enforcement Col. Terry West.
"This is a great way for our law enforcement officers to keep the public informed on our activity throughout the week."
The law enforcement section of the WRD is responsible for protecting Georgia's wildlife populations by enforcing laws, rules and regulations pertaining to game and nongame animals, threatened and endangered plants and animals, exotic animals, boating safety, litter and waste control and other natural resource issues.
Law enforcement also administers the state's hunter education and boating safety programs. Conservation Rangers investigate violations of wildlife laws, as well as hunting and boating incidents. They also conduct classes and programs to educate citizens about wildlife laws and safety practices.
