Conference training sessions are designed to address current trends in park law enforcement and visitor protection. Field trips provide a personal experience to see firsthand how other agencies are managing daily operations and special events. This is an excellent opportunity to meet other park professionals from across the country and learn from each other.


The Park Law Enforcement Association Awards & Scholarship program recognizes the outstanding work and accomplishments of men and woman in the park law enforcement profession throughout North America. We encourage nominations of deserving officers and agencies.


The Park Law Enforcement Association is a national not-for-profit organization dedicated to advancing the park law enforcement and conservation profession through specialized development, thus improving the quality of life and leisure opportunities in and around local, state and national park and recreation areas.
