Law Enforcement

The Law Enforcement Division's purpose is to provide a comprehensive statewide law enforcement program to protect Texas' natural resources and environment, and provide safe boating and recreational water safety on public waters by ensuring compliance with applicable state laws and regulations. Texas game wardens are responsible for enforcement of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Code, all TPW regulations, the Texas Penal Code and selected statutes and regulations applicable to clean air, water and hazardous materials. Wardens fulfill these responsibilities through educating the public about various laws and regulations, preventing violations by conducting high visibility patrols and apprehending and arresting violators. Operation Game Thief provides citizens with a toll-free number to report poaching and other violations.

To carry out its responsibilities, the Law Enforcement Division has 5 regional offices, 27 district offices, approximately 500 game wardens, and a staff at Austin Headquarters.

To make sure these game wardens can perform their duties and to keep the offices running, and the equipment maintained, purchases are made basically on three levels - by the district offices, the regional offices, and Austin Headquarters. Most of the large quantity purchases, such as vehicles, uniforms, and leather goods, are purchases by personnel in Austin for distribution out of our warehouse facility. Also, any purchase of equipment over $5,000 is made by Austin personnel; however, the regional offices usually furnish basic specifications to Austin for these types of items. All other purchases of merchandise or services are made by the regional and district offices. The game wardens also make purchases; however, their purchases usually pertain to repairs or maintenance on their vehicles and other equipment assigned to them.

For general information regarding purchases made by the Law Enforcement Division, you may contact Pam Stoikes at 512-389-4840.
