Police Join Opposition to Eliminate Law Enforcement on Public Land Posted on Police Backcountry Hunters & Anglers USA -(Ammoland.com)- On Jan. 24, Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah introduced the Local Enforcement for Local Lands Act ( H.R. 622 ) in the U.S. House of Representatives. H.R. 622 would eliminate federal law enforcement officers on America’s national forests and Bureau of Land Management lands, leaving hundreds of millions of acres vulnerable to abuse and lawless behavior, taxing state and local authorities and fundamentally compromising American’s safety, both in and around public lands. H.R. 622 would negatively impact our treasured lands and waters at a time when law enforcement is critically needed to safeguard important natural and cultural resources and secure public safety. Local, state and federal law enforcement have a long and successful history of cooperation. Public lands users such as sportsmen understand and support this tradition. Last week, Rep. Chaffetz withdrew a companion bill to H.R. 622. H.R. 621 would have mandated the sale of more than 3 million acres of public lands. His decision to abandon the bill followed strong, outspoken and unrelenting criticism from sportsmen and others. Now, sportsmen are joining forces with the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association and other law enforcement officers to advocate for safe, consistent enforcement on U.S. public lands – and to urge Rep. Chaffetz to withdraw from the House of Representatives H.R. 622. Join a press conference on Wednesday, Feb. 8, at 9 a.m. MT/11 a.m. ET to learn about H.R. 622 and why citizens are uniting behind this threat to our public lands. Speakers will include the following: Pat O’Carroll, Executive Director, Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA), Maryland Jay Webster, Patrol Captain (retired), U.S. Forest Service Law Enforcement & Investigations (USFS LEI), Washington Lanny Wagner, Chief Law Enforcement Ranger (retired), U.S. Bureau of Land Management, Colorado Randy Newberg, Host, “Fresh Tracks” and “Hunt Talk Podcast,” Montana Moderator: Land Tawney, President and CEO, Backcountry Hunters & Anglers, Montana To join the call, dial 1-800-247-5110 and enter passcode 98517. Please RSVP to Katie McKalip at 406-240-9262 or mckalip@backcountryhunters.org. Backcountry Hunters & Anglers is the sportsmen’s voice for our wild public lands, waters and wildlife.
