NACLE Conservation Law Enforcement Survey
Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management is currently working with the National Association of Conservation Law Enforcement Chiefs and Responsive Management, a research firm specializing in attitudes toward natural resources and outdoor recreation, on a nationwide study about the future of law enforcement conservation in the United States. As part of this study, Rhode Island residents are being surveyed about their opinions on important conservation law enforcement issues.
You do NOT have to participate in outdoor recreation or be knowledgeable about any specific issues to qualify for the survey—the researchers are looking for input from ALL residents. Also note that this is a scientific, probability-based survey, which means that you can only participate in the survey if you are randomly selected to do so. This is why your participation in the survey is so important. As a survey respondent you are representing many other Rhode Island residents.
We encourage you to participate in the survey if you happen to receive a call from one of Responsive Management’s telephone interviewers. The survey takes around 10 minutes to complete and the results will help fish and wildlife agencies across the country understand U.S. residents’ perceptions of important conservation law enforcement issues and challenges. Thank you in advance for your input!
