    Press Release from NYS DEC:

    DEC Announces Environmental Conservation Police Officer and Forest
    Ranger Exams Being Held in October

    Exam Application Deadline is September 4, 2019

    New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC)
    Commissioner Basil Seggos today encouraged individuals interested in
    becoming a Forest Ranger or Environmental Conservation Police Officer (ECO)
    to apply for civil service exams being offered for the positions this fall.
    Applications are being accepted until September 4, 2019.

    "DEC Forest Rangers and Environmental Conservation Police Officers are
    instrumental in protecting wildlife, natural resources, state lands and the people
    who use them," Commissioner Seggos said. "From search and rescue operations
    to uncovering environmental crimes, these brave men and women are often first
    on the front lines of some of the most harrowing events. We encourage anyone
    interested in joining our ranks of admirable professionals to sign up for the exams
    today."

    The civil service exams will be held the weekend of October 19, 2019. There are
    separate exams and different qualifications for becoming an Environmental
    Conservation Police Officer or Forest Ranger. Potential applicants should closely
    review qualifications required for each position to determine which exam they are
    eligible to take. Those who want to apply for both positions, and meet the
    required qualifications, must submit separate applications and will be required to
    take both exams.

    A full summary of qualifications, salary, and application procedures can be found
    online at the New York State Department of Civil Service exam announcements
    web pages for Forest Rangers and Environmental Conservation Police Officers.

    Exam scores will be used to rank candidates and create eligible lists to fill
    openings for Environmental Conservation Police Officers or Forest Rangers.
    Although the exam is being offered, there is no guarantee that there will be
    openings. The eligibility list from this exam is expected to remain active for up to
    four years.

    In the future, candidates selected from the list would be required to attend a 28-
    week residential training program at the DEC Basic Academy. Recruits must
    pass all elements of the Academy before being assigned to a work location. DEC
    recently began the 22nd Basic School for Uniformed Officers on May 19. For an
    inside look into what it takes to be an Environmental Conservation Police Officer
    or a Forest Ranger, watch a 4-minute clip from 2017's Basic School for
    Uniformed Officers available on YouTube. Additional information on DEC
    Environmental Conservation Police Officers and Forest Rangers is available
    online.
