Resource Enforcement and Compliance (REC) / Game Wardens Section (GWS)

The Mission of the REC is to provide Camp Pendleton and Environmental Security with resource, cultural, environmental mission program support, and Conservation Law Enforcement Officer (CLEO) investigations of specific violations. We also manage wildlife conflict, manage and administer the recreational hunting, fishing, dispersed-camping programs while providing quality of life to customers and ensuring compliance to applicable laws.

This is accomplished by providing base-wide CLEO responses, patrols and investigations into resource and environmental related violations along with providing technician support to minimize human/wildlife conflict on base while ensuring today’s and future generations of Marines, Sailors, their families and others are able to safely enjoy recreational camping, fishing, and hunting activities.

Office hours: 5am-8pm on hunting days (weekends and holidays).
