The Pennsylvania Game Commission’s Northeast Region office will conduct an open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 5, to offer interested persons information on how to become a Deputy Wildlife Conservation Officer.
“Deputy Wildlife Conservation Officers (DWCOs) work with our full-time officers to provide wildlife law enforcement, nuisance wildlife control, and educational services to the hunting and general public,” Northeast Region director Daniel Figured said. “While becoming a deputy is a big commitment, the position can be very rewarding.”
Wildlife Conservation Officers and region deputies will be on hand to explain the application process, basic requirements, qualifications and duties. Interested applicants must be at least 21 years of age and a high-school graduate or have a GED equivalency diploma, and should have a good understanding of hunting/trapping related activities.
The Game Commission Northeast Region office is located at 3917 Memorial Hwy. in Dallas. The office phone number is 570-675-1143. No reservations are required. Refreshments will be provided.
