Only territorial forest officers have jurisdiction over revenue towns. If an officer of the Wildlife Division wants to raid a house or arrest a person in a revenue town, then the officer has to submit a written report regarding it to the police station having jurisdiction over the area and must then be accompanied by the police officers.
