West Virginia Division of Natural Resources
Law Enforcement Section


Home of the oldest statewide law enforcement agency, serving the citizens of West Virginia since February 1897.

The Law Enforcement Section is primarily responsible for the enforcement of the game and fish laws and rules. Officers in the section carry on a continuing program of Hunter Education and Boating Safety Education, as well as enforce laws relating to littering, forestry, state parks, environmental/solid waste, pleasure boating, and whitewater rafting. They also respond during times of emergency such as floods and other natural disasters, as well as assist the State Police during times of strife similar to the large coal strikes in past decades. Natural Resources Police Officers are the most visible of the division employees. A highly visible force of uniformed officers is a deterrent to violations of the natural resources laws.

You may contact the Law Enforcement Section by writing to the following address.
