40 wildlife officers from 13 states attended the recent 2018 "IHEA-USA Hunting Incident Investigation Academy" held in Mayflower, AR, March 5-9, 2018. Hosted by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.
The IHEA-USA Hunter Incident Academy, the only one of its kind, provides skills, knowledge, techniques and confidence to state and federal wildlife officers in hunting related incidents. IHEA-USA is keenly interested in the proper collection, documentation, and analysis of this important data. Wildlife law enforcement officers who are already experts in investigations in outdoor landscapes will improve their investigative techniques. With this additional training, improved collection of facts is possible, and crucial in the mission of keeping hunting the safe activity that it is. for curriculum development and media outreach efforts to aid in the prevention of hunting incidents. Through hunter education courses volunteer instructors provide students with the needed knowledge and skills to avoid becoming a statistic.
