The Department of Land and Natural Resources’ Division of Conservation and Resources Enforcement is beginning recruitment for entry-level conservation and resources enforcement officer positions to fill vacancies across the state.

The application process opens online on June 3 at midnight here.

“Since these positions do not require any previous law enforcement experience, we expect many people will be interested in applying,” said division chief Jason Redulla. “We have a limited number of positions available, and anyone interested in applying should do so as soon as possible.”


This job recruitment, for full-time, permanent positions, will be advertised on the State of Hawai‘i jobs website, operated by the Department of Human Resources Development and is also where interested people can submit their applications and other required documentation.

Basic qualifications include:

  • Minimum age of 21 at the time of application
  • Two years of general work experience
  • Meet federal and state firearms regulations
  • Able to swim 100 meters within three minutes
  • Able to hike one mile within 20 minutes
  • Valid driver’s license
  • Applicants subject to background & fingerprint clearances, pre-employment drug testing

Applicants are encouraged to apply quickly, as only a limited number of applications can be received, and once application intake limits are reached, the recruitment will end.
