2. Helmets (must be worn during enforcement).
3. Safety Requirements (must be met during enforcement).

There are three (3) different types of grants:
- General ATV Enforcement: Level 1 Enforcement: Handling ATV complaints from Landowners or other persons about the operation of ATVs, responding to ATV accidents and enforcing ATV laws during the normal course of patrol duties. Or Level 2 Enforcement: ATV enforcement that is focused on recognized ATV problems in a localized area, but not a multijurisdictional high problem area.
