PORT ANGELES — Behind closed doors, border security, terrorism and drugs are just a few of the topics being discussed by a group of law enforcement officers that specializes in working off the beaten path.
About 40 game wardens from 17 state, provincial and federal wildlife services are meeting in Port Angeles for the Western Wildlife Law Enforcement Association conference held through Wednesday at the Red Lion Hotel, 221 N. Lincoln St.
From as far away as North Dakota and Saskatchewan, the officers come to learn the latest in budgeting, recruiting techniques, animal control and law enforcement.
They bring their ideas and procedures to share with their counterparts in hopes of streamlining their own departments and get new ideas to perform their duties more efficiently, said association President Bruce Bjork.
Their duties, Bjork said, often includes protecting the American public in much the same way a city police officer would.
