National Forest lands are divided administratively into regions and each region has a Special Agent in Charge also known as a SAC who oversees the law enforcement program. Each region is divided into zones and special agents are stationed in each zone according to work load.
The typical organization below the SAC is one position to supervise the investigative division and one patrol commander to supervise the enforcement organization.
Depending upon the number of employees in each region, each regional organization is supported by administrative personnel usually including a budget analyst, administrative assistant, and an investigative assistant. The administrative assistant handles personnel issues, budget, travel, filing, and data input of incident reports.
