§

4191. Game wardens, number, record

(a) The

commissioner, with the approval of the governor, may employ a chief game warden

and as many state game wardens as may be required for the proper enforcement of

the fish and wildlife laws of the state. These officers shall be included in

the classified service created in chapter 13 of Title 3. These officers and

deputy game wardens employed as herein provided shall be sworn to the faithful

performance of their duties. The commissioner may appoint and employ for a

limited time as many deputy game wardens as deemed necessary. The number of

game wardens shall be determined by the commissioner with the approval of the

governor. A copy of the appointment and oath of office of each game warden and

deputy shall be filed in the office of the commissioner.

(b) While so

employed, game wardens shall devote their entire time to the discharge of their

duties and shall not be engaged in any other business without having first

obtained permission to do so from the commissioner. The commissioner may grant

permission if it appears that the outside employment will not render the warden

unavailable during an emergency, will not physically or mentally exhaust the

warden to the point that performance of duties might be affected and will not

require that any special consideration be given to scheduling of regular duty

hours. (Added 1961, No. 119, § 1, eff. May 9, 1961; amended 1985, No. 101 (Adj.

Sess.); 1991, No. 230 (Adj. Sess.), § 18.)
