• Michigan conservation officers (COs) are among the most highly trained and well-equipped law enforcement officers in the nation. The conservation officer academy trains prospective COs for more than 20 weeks. Graduates then become probationary COs and must complete 18 additional weeks of field training, followed by four to five weeks of specialized training.
