wildlife enforcement officers to meet in boise


Idaho Fish and Game conservation officers are rolling out the welcome mat for fellow wildlife enforcement officers from around the United States and Canada.

The annual conference of the North American Wildlife Enforcement Officers Association will be July 14 through July 20, and this year's host city is Boise.

Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter will be among the dignitaries welcoming the officers to Idaho.

Opening ceremonies begin at 8 a.m. Wednesday, July 17, with a group photo of officers, each in their agency's uniform, on the steps of the state Capitol, followed by a parade at 8:45 a.m. down Capitol Boulevard to the Boise Event Center where the conference will take place.

The conference, which attracts several hundred wildlife law enforcement professionals each year, takes place each summer and offers training for conservation officers as well as social activities for their families.
