The state today began recruiting Conservation and Resources Enforcement officers to fill vacancies across Hawaii.
Both permanent and temporary positions are available, according to the state Department of Land and Natural Resources Division of Conservation and Resources Enforcement, and posted on the state of Hawaii jobs website.
No previous law enforcement experience is required.
Potential officers must meet the minimum qualifications:

>> Meet federal and state firearms regulations
>> Be able to swim 100 meters within three minutes
>> Hike one mile within 20 minutes
>> Have a valid driver’s license
All applicants are subject to background and fingerprint clearances, and pre-employment drug testing.
