MN DNR Conservation Officers

As licensed peace officers, Conservation Officers enforce laws and regulations under the jurisdiction of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, which relate to:

  • fish and wildlife,

  • state parks,

  • trails,

  • forests,

  • waters and wetlands.

They also perform public relations and educational duties throughout the state. To reach a conservation officer, call the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157. The CO for our region is Jacque Hughes.

Also available for reporting a suspected violation is the Turn In Poachers (TIP) Hotline: 1-800-652-9093.
