Abstract

Reports from within a larger study of crime and enforcement in forests and parks, this field study having taken place in western USA over a 24‐month period. Interviews Forest Service Law Enforcement Officers (LEOs) about their career history, the enforcement system and related issues ‐ notably weapons events. Finds that LEOs are not heavy‐handed and that the types of crime encountered give valid reasons for their carriage of firearms.
