Part-time positions may also be an option

MADISON -- The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Bureau of Law Enforcement is hiring its 2020 Class of Conservation Wardens whose primary responsibility will be to deliver law enforcement services on the nine busiest state parks and forests in Wisconsin.

The department is looking to hire 11 full-time wardens; and, those interested in part-time positions also are encouraged to apply. Also, those already working in law enforcement may be eligible for new compensation policies for incoming officers.

"Hiring 11 full-time conservation wardens who will focus primarily on state parks and forest law enforcement is a first," Jeffrey King assistant training director for the DNR Bureau of Law Enforcement said.

King said people more interested in part-time conservation warden work should apply for the full-time position. "This year we will be inviting candidates from the applicants for the full-time position to compete for both full-time and part-time positions."

The 2020 class tentatively would start the training program on October 27 of this year.

"Do you want a career that is part of something big?" King said. "Apply now! Wisconsin DNR Conservation Wardens protect our natural resources, our state parks and forests, the environment, and the people who enjoy resource rich Wisconsin."

More information about applications is available on the state of Wisconsin Wisc.Jobs website.
