Game Warden

tpwd-logo-1000Texas Game Wardens will conduct their fifth virtual patrol ride-along via Twitter on May 21, the opening day of National Safe Boating Week.

The wardens will give the public a first-hand look at what it’s like to be a warden patrolling on the waters of a central Texas lake.

Throughout that afternoon and evening, the agency’s technology warden – also a commissioned game warden – will join wardens on the water and tweet continuously what happens. The public is invited to follow along at twitter.com/TexasGameWarden or @TexasGameWarden.

“Our conservation enforcement role is exciting and ever-changing,” says Col. Craig Hunter, director of law enforcement for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. “Using this social media technology allows us a way to show the public what our game wardens do. More importantly, stressing proper precautions while on the water is a message we want to send to all boaters.”
