Fire Protection Law Enforcement Trends in California

Levying fines for violations of forest fire laws often creates harmful animosity. Many foresters believe that if the forest ranger is also a law enforcement officer his effectiveness as a teacher of forestry is impaired. They believe that if handled separately as an administrative function by a carefully trained officer it can be made a more potent force through pedagogy. How this is done in two widely different regions in California--Los Angeles city and the redwood region--is set forth by the author. He believes that the success already achieved in California merits a much wider application of educative law enforcement when coordinated with individual responsibilities, and that the real purpose of the law is more effectively met by such policy than if punishment alone is the fire agency's basis of enforcement.
