- Granite State of Mind
Most street cops couldn't do it. Aside from the knowledge of wildlife that is required, most COs operate in the middle of nowhere, where backup is a half hour or more away. They handle everything from seacoast and lake/marine environments, to the top of Mount Washington. Almost everyone they encounter is armed and usually with friends who are armed.Yep. Overpaid for a job a lot of cops would like to do.
It requires a level of people skills much like the other kind of COs (corrections), because being able to do the job and still survive requires persuasion, not force.
