Welcome To the Conservation Officer's Of Pennsylvania - COPA Website
In early 1994, Pennsylvania's Wildlife and Waterways Conservation Officers formed and incorporated the Conservation Officers of Pennsylvania Association (COPA). COPA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-deductible organization under the Internal Revenue Code. COPA is also registered with the Pennsylvania's Bureau of Charitable Organizations.
Congratulations to 2013 Deputy Wildlife Conservation Officer of the Year Michael "Bill" Lubich. http://t.co/Jwskqd7IrO— PA Game Commission (@PAGameComm) December 16, 2014
Each year, Pennsylvania Conservation Officers check thousands of hunters, anglers, trappers, and recreational vehicles for compliance with fish, boating and wildlife laws. A compliance check by a Conservation Officer is an opportunity for outdoor enthusiasts to have positive interactions with Conservation Officers while in the woods and on the waters of Pennsylvania. Conservation Officers can help explain laws and can help you learn more about outdoor opportunities and conditions in your area.
The Pennsylvania Game Commission Ceremonial Unit also known to many as the Honor Guard was formed in the spring of 2009 by the then Bureau of Wildlife Protection, Assistant Director, Thomas Grohol. Grohol saw the need for a formalized unit to call upon for events within and outside the agency.
Twelve members, from across the state, were chosen to form the unit and began training with the PA State Police in the fall of 2009.
