  • Game Wardens

    Ok, in Virginia, I believe Game Wardens can make normal traffic stops as usually LE can... But i may be mistaken, so can somebody shed some light on this topic... The main thing im wondering is can a game warden pull u over for speeding, or other traffic violations?
    We are Volunteers, we don't get paid for what we do
    But our hope and prayers are to always see you through
    We can be eating or awakened in the middle of the night
    With a blast of our pagers saying There is a Fire we need to fight!
    We are up and dressed and out the door
    We meet sirens blaring and trucks that roar
    The adrenaline pumping, were ready to go
    Will we make it home? We never know.

      Game Warden

      In Alabama, a Game Warden has the authority to make traffic stops/arrests. I'm not certain what Dept of Conservation policy concerning traffic stops is currently, but yes, in Alabama Game Wardens have the authority to make traffic stops.

          In Indiana, they are fully empowered police officers.

            In VA, they are similar to state troopers and can make traffic stops if they feel the need. Their vehicles are equipped with blue lights & sirens and our game wardens are considered "law enforcement" by statute.

            Those chaps have a tough and demanding job.......and you must also realize that most people with whom they come in contact are going to be armed.


            Hats off to them!

              In Mississippi, there are more of them than any other state LEO, and they have full police powers (more so than a lot of other state agencies that you would think would have those powers and don't).

                  Wisconsin wardens have full police power with state jurisdiction. Traffic stops, domestics, fights, etc are all fair game for wardens, however; their primary duty is still enforcing game, fish, and recreation laws.
