Delaware -(Ammoland.com)- DNREC Secretary David Small and Division of Fish & Wildlife Natural Resources Police Chief Robert Legates, along with NRP officers, today unveiled their new mobile multimedia outreach unit for Operation Game Theft, a program which encourages the public to assist natural resources police officers in apprehending and convicting Delaware game law violators.
The 27-foot-long display trailer, which includes more than 100 weapons (all inoperable) and items confiscated from poachers and other game law violators, is available for outreach at community events.
“Protecting and conserving Delaware’s wildlife resources is a key part of DNREC’s mission,” said Secretary Small. “In addition to enforcing our wildlife laws and regulations, DNREC’s Fish & Wildlife Natural Resources Police are charged with educating the public about these laws. This new mobile Operation Game Theft display is a high-visibility tool for conducting this important public outreach and education.”
“Typically, we receive about 250 calls a year to Operation Game Theft. While not all calls lead to an arrest and conviction, we investigate all the information we receive,” said Chief Legates. …read more
