The BC Conservation Officer Service is set to put a focus on off-road vehicle enforcement.

Deputy Chief Chris Doyle says the COS will soon have 8 auxiliary officers tasked with providing off-road vehicle education and enforcement.

Doyle says the 8 new officers will be trained throughout July and August and will work through until January in different areas across the province.

Doyle says the COS is also reminding campers or anyone traveling in the back-country to safely dispose of their garbage before they leave their campsites in order to avoid any human-wildlife conflict.
