Council's Rangers are responsible for investigating complaints and enforcing legislation throughout the Eurobodalla Shire. Our Rangers work to provide consistent law enforcement to keep people safe and protect the environment, while ensuring community members can continue to enjoy the local area and lifestyle.
Most of the work done by Rangers is in response to requests from community members, and often involves an investigation.
Rangers are on duty five days a week from 7.30am to 4.30pm (excluding Christmas Day and public holidays).

Outside of business hours, rangers are available for emergency matters only. Emergencies include public health and safety issues such as stock on public roads and serious dog attacks.
