    COLUMBUS -- Applications are being accepted beginning Monday until April 15 for the next wildlife officer training school.

    The Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Wildlife, is seeking to fill 18 wildlife officer positions throughout Ohio.

    Wildlife officers have statewide jurisdiction to enforce wildlife regulations, investigate allegations of waterway pollution, protect state property and make arrests. They also conduct educational programs, advise landowners on dealing with wildlife, and keep local agencies and conservation organizations updated on wildlife projects and regulations. They frequently work alone and can be assigned anywhere in the state.

    "We are looking for individuals who are interested in law enforcement, wildlife conservation and public service," said Vicki Mountz, acting Division of Wildlife chief. "They need to work independently and have good communication skills."

    To be considered for the wildlife officer training school, applicants must be at least 21 years old by April 1 and have a valid driver's license. An associate's degree or completion of an undergraduate core program in fish or wildlife management, criminal justice, environmental law enforcement or related fields is required by the end of August.

    Applicants also must be able to demonstrate physical fitness according to standards developed by the Ohio Peace Officers Training Commission, as well as swim 100 yards in five minutes and tread water for five minutes.

    Candidates who meet the minimum qualifications will be invited to take a state proficiency examination June 4 in central Ohio.

    Top scoring candidates will then undergo interviews and pre-employment evaluations. Those who are selected as cadets will attend the wildlife officer academy for about six months. During the academy, cadets will study law enforcement, fish and wildlife management techniques, and learn informational and educational skills. The academy will begin in January.
