Game wardens undergo the most rigorous training of any peace officer in Texas. TPWF has played a critical role in raising private funds for the Texas Game Warden Training Center. This training facility represents the beginning, middle, and end of every game warden’s career, serving as their initiation into the culture of service and excellence that is expected.
Enhancing Texas Game Warden’s capabilities is a priority for TPWF. Through support from TPWF, a highly successful K-9 Unit was established in 2013. TPWF continues to support the unit by adding new K-9s and purchasing specialty equipment over and above standard-issue gear.
The state provides the basic necessities for Texas Game Wardens, but there is still a critical need for additional equipment. Since 2017, TPWF’s Gear Up for Game Wardens program has raised more than $2.6 million in private funds to help advance the capabilities of Texas’ 550 game wardens and equip them with specialized equipment beyond their standard issue gear.
