Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission changes training to keep officers

According to Col. Clyde Warner, director of the commission’s Bureau of Law Enforcement, there are multiple factors that limit the amount of applicants for the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission’s Waterways Conservation Officers training program and the total that make it through the training. One of the reasons, he said, is that fewer people today are raised with a hunting and fishing background. (Stock photo)
Attrition is expected with each class of cadets going through the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission’s Waterways Conservation Officers training program.  But in recent years, the number of cadets dropping out of the class was higher than the agency liked, and changes are being implemented to slow the trend.
