September 16, 2011
By

FRANKFORT, Ky. The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources will be advertising for 28 conservation officer recruit positions beginning at midnight on Friday, Sept. 16, 2011.
Applicants must create an account online through the Kentucky Personnel Cabinet website and apply to the posting, which will be open for 10 days.
The size of the recruit class depends on the vacancies at the time, said Capt. Myra Minton, acting assistant director of the Law Enforcement Division of Kentucky Fish and Wildlife. By the time we hire this class, it will be almost two years since the last hiring.

To be eligible to apply, prospective recruits must meet one of the following requirements: an associate degree or 54 semester hours from a college or university; two years of sworn law enforcement service; two years of military service or four years of fish and wildlife related experience.
Candidates will be required to pass a written exam, a physical fitness test, drug testing, psychological testing and an oral interview process. The target date for this hiring is Jan. 16, 2012, said Minton. Recruits are graded, and the top recruits get their choice of counties.
Counties where conservation officers may be assigned include: Bath, Boyd, Breckinridge, Butler, Carroll, Clinton, Estill, Fulton, Grant, Hardin, Pulaski, Lewis, Livingston, Magoffin, McCracken, Meade, Ohio, Oldham, Pike, Rockcastle, Russell, Taylor, Trimble, Union, Warren, Washington, Wayne and Wolfe.
Conservation officers patrol Kentuckys woods, fields and waterways, enforcing hunting, fishing and boating laws. Officers help preserve and protect Kentuckys outdoor tradition and heritage.
