Applicants Sought for Game Warden Academy

AUSTIN, Texas — Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is seeking qualified applicants for a game warden cadet class scheduled to start Nov. 1. Applications will be accepted beginning Feb. 2 through April 30.

More than 400 people applied for the 55 positions in the current cadet class that will graduate in June.

Applicants must be 21 years old on or before Nov. 1 and have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university. The degree requirement must be met prior to Sep.1.

To be accepted, applicants must meet the minimum eligibility requirements and successfully complete a regional interview, a physical readiness test, and an extensive background investigation. Applicants must successfully complete each step before advancing to the next step.

After graduation, the new game wardens will be assigned to vacant stations throughout Texas with the responsibility of protecting the state’s natural resources. Game wardens also protect lives by enforcing the Water Safety Act and conducting standard peace officer duties.

More information on game warden cadet requirements may be obtained on the Law Enforcement Career Opportunities page on the TPWD Web site or at TPWD Law Enforcement offices.

For additional information, contact Texas Game Warden Recruiter Royce Wells via e-mail at Royce.wells@tpwd.texas.gov or toll-free by phone at (877) 229-2733.
