Department of Wildlife and Fisheries graduates 15 new agents
BATON ROUGE - The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is gaining 15 new enforcement agents.
The department says the new agents graduate Thursday from the 6-month law enforcement academy.
The department said in January that up to 24 more will begin training in May.
Wildlife and Fisheries agents enforce state recreational boating laws and state and federal wildlife and fisheries laws. They're also trained in general law enforcement and in search and rescue techniques.
