Come to the First Game Warden Tweetalong

AUSTIN – Texas game wardens will conduct their first-ever virtual patrol ridealong via Twitter over the Labor Day weekend.

The wardens will give the public a first-hand look at what happens on a typical opening dove season shift in their tweet-along on Sunday, September 1.

Throughout that day, the agency’s technology warden, also a commissioned officer, will join a warden in Travis County and tweet continuously what happens that day.  The public is invited to follow along at twitter.com/TexasGameWarden.

Special Operations Chief Grahame Jones conceived the idea because he wanted to give the public a better idea of what officers face on a given shift.

“I think showing the public first-hand what our game wardens do will help build relationships,” Jones said.
