It is my observation that I really donít know what they do to earn their pay ?
I don't blame you, since you rarely if ever see SFRs, especially when you need them to deal with a problem you have.
However, you have to realize that law enforcement is the primary function of ECOs and not all SFRs are ECOs. Further, all SFRs are stretched so thin that handling a complaint from a Forester on an easement (likely in the middle of nowhere) probably does not make the top priority list.
Unfortunately, these days Rangers rarely make it beyond the end of that top priority list...
