Wildlife violations sometimes lead game wardens underwater and the AGFC Enforcement Dive Team is ready. This group of highly trained divers responds to all areas of the state at any time, day or night. This team is trained to tackle the worst possible diving conditions, from body recovery to evidence searches. The Dive Team also patrols for divers who may be illegally harvesting game or endangered species.
AGFC game wardens work hand in hand with K-9 partners. Multiple K-9 units are positioned across the state to assist officers in the protection of wildlife and to track violators or lost individuals. K-9 teams spend many hours training to provide them with the ability to be proficient in article detection and tracking. AGFC K-9 units also participate in many public relation events at schools and festivals.

Drones are a tool that provide an aerial perspective to assist AGFC game wardens in the protection and management of Arkansas' natural resources. Drones can also quickly access areas and provide a visual perspective for disaster response and other special circumstances where officer and public safety is a priority.
Honor Guard members are a very dedicated group of game wardens that performs flag presentations and funeral services for current and retired law enforcement officers. Each year a chosen few attend the National Police Week in Washington D.C. Honor Guard members participate in several events honoring fallen officers from across the nation during this event. Honor Guard members wear uniforms that represent the highest respect for families, officers and friends.
