The Southeastern Wildlife Law Enforcement Research Project: Progress and Perspectives

The Southeastern Wildlife Law Enforcement Research Project was initiated in 1976 by cooperative efforts and funding among Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, the Wildlife Management Institute, the American Petroleum Institute, the National Wildlife Federation, and the wildlife agencies of Virginia, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia. Progress has included staffing, problem analysis, two publications, massive data collection, and initiation of two projects on agent allocation and crimeload prediction. Minor problems encountered are discussed, studies on agent deployment summarized, future plans outlined, and agencies invited to participate.
