Texas Game Warden Mission Statement
Since 1895, our mission has been to have Texas Game Wardens serve the citizens of Texas by providing professional law enforcement, water safety, and search and rescue, while working to conserve and protect the natural resources of Texas.
Game Warden Strategic Plan
For over 100 years, Texas Game Wardens have exemplified dedication, passion and commitment to protecting the natural resources of Texas.
As fully commissioned State Peace Officers, Texas Game Wardens not only enforce fishing, hunting and water safety laws; they also apprehend dangerous criminals and provide valuable public safety to the people of Texas.
We now have our Strategic Plan available, which includes our primary goals, strategies, and leadership model.
Search and Rescue, Disaster Response
“Any natural disaster and we will go.” Since 1895 our Texas Game Wardens have played a critical role in protecting Texas. They are here to help the citizens of Texas with an integrated team of professionals.
From well-trained helicopter pilots to K-9 teams to sonar-equipped dive teams, they risk their lives to protect others. From swift water rescue boats to helicopter hoists, there is no value that can be placed upon losing a human life.
Your Texas Game Wardens strive to maintain funding levels to have an appropriate response to persons in need in Texas.
Lone Star Law in Second Season
Television viewers once again are riding along with Texas Game Wardens as they patrol more than a quarter-million square miles of Texas' deserts, lakes, piney wood, bayous, plains and coastline. The second season of "Lone Star Law" premiered on Animal Planet in February 2017.
The show features Texas Game Wardens who protect the people and natural resources of our state. Every day, Game Wardens encounter all types of situations affecting both citizens and the state's wild places and wild things. At a moment’s notice, they must rush to investigate large-scale poaching cases, save victims from the devastating effects of natural disaster, disrupt illegal smuggling operations along the Gulf of Mexico, and rescue injured wildlife.
