Program: Brent Lounsbury, a Ranger with Colorado Parks and Wildlife, will be talking about natural resources law enforcement.  Brent has been a certified peace officer for 13 years and a supervisor for 10 years.  He is a law enforcement handgun and patrol rifle instructor, snowmobile and survival instructor, CPR / First Aid instructor, former EMT, and is SWAT certified.

Brent will talk about what it’s like to respond to a threat in the wilderness, knowing backup is hours away, and often that the individuals you’re about to “contact” are well armed.  Managing acreage is very different than city blocks and creates its own special set of issues, including patrolling on ATVs, snowmobiles, and boats.  Sometimes the wilderness brings out the best in people and sometimes people do silly—and downright dangerous—activities.

Brent will talk about his approach to mindset, preparedness and tactics, as well as how different agencies’ jurisdictions and roles intermingle.  He will answer questions about firearms, kinds of injuries, law enforcement policies, and anything else that comes to mind.
