This article presents the history of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation's Division of Law Enforcement. The state's oldest law enforcement organization began with a contingent of eight men appointed as Game Protectors in 1880. Protectors were granted authority to enforce laws to protect fish and wildlife and to bring legal action against those who violate those laws. The division has evolved into a top-rated police organization.
