DNR Spokesperson Talks Ride Along With CPO

A pair of regular WHOW morning show guests joined forces last month for a ride-along and was a big hit on social media.


DNR spokesperson Rachel Torbert joined DNR Conservation Police Sergeant John Williamson for a ride-along during the first shotgun firearm season and she says it was quite the experience. Torbert indicates she was able to see what it was like in a day in the life of a DNR CPO.



According to Torbert, she was able to see Sgt. Williamson toured through DeWitt, McLean and Logan Counties and she witnessed him interact with hunters and sort through common issues they encounter.



During the ride-along, Torbert took to Facebook for a Facebook live session with Sgt. Williamson and indicates the watchers threw out some good questions.
