Whitmer Announces Conservation Officer Appreciation Day

Governor Gretchen Whitmer has announced that March 15th, 2021 is Conservation Officer Appreciation Day.

Over two hundred men and women serve as conservation officers in the state of Michigan.

They are sworn law enforcement officers who are equipped with the knowledge of responding to criminal, life–threatening and search and rescue events.

Last year, conservation officers reached out to more than 450,000 people to deliver safety tips and law enforcement services.
