Department of Natural Resources new online reports highlight statewide law enforcement activity on a

POSTED: February 24, 2008 5:00 a.m.
SOCIAL CIRCLE -- The Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division, hopes to make it easier 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 across the state. WRD rangers provide information on natural resource related, illegal activity and issued citations, as well as information on local WRD events and educational programs.
To view the report, visit the WRD Web site, 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," WRD chief of law enforcement Col. Terry West said. "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 by enforcing laws, rules and regulations pertaining to game and non-game 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.
For more information on the online reports, posted weekly at www.georgiawildlife.com, or for more information on the law enforcement section, call the WRD law enforcement headquarters office at (770) 918-6408.
