CitizenObserver, the TIP411 provider, uses technology to remove all identifying information before the AGFC receives the text so the AGFC cannot identify the sender.
Each county has at least two officers assigned to patrol its woods and waters, and officers work together to target heavily used areas during certain times of the year. But with all the added men and women, the AGFC has only 180 wildlife officers when at full staff.
With only 180 wildlife officers to cover more than 3.4 million acres of hunting and fishing area in Arkansas, the deck may seem stacked in favor of poachers. With the help of concerned sportsmen and sportswomen who care about Arkansass natural resources, the AGFC continues to make a strong statement to people who try to skirt the law and ignore wildlife regulations.
The AGFCs radio room is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to receive calls about poaching. Tipsters can inform a local officer, who will get back in touch with the contact.
Sources can remain anonymous and rewards of up to $1,000 are offered for information leading to the arrest of some violators.
