New Conservation Enforcement Officers Hired for Chambers and Montgomery Counties

The Alabama Department of Conservation’s Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries’ District IV has gotten some much needed help with the addition of two new Conservation Enforcement Officers. John Davidson and Grady Myers were sworn in on July 26.

Officer Davidson, who lives in Tallassee, will be assigned to Chambers County. He is a graduate of Auburn and Auburn University Montgomery.

Officer Myers, who is also an Auburn graduate, is from Prattville. He will be assigned to Montgomery County.

District IV includes Autauga, Bullock, Chambers, Coosa, Elmore, Lee, Lowndes, Macon, Montgomery, Russell and Tallapoosa counties.

The Enforcement Section is responsible for protection of Alabama’s wildlife and fisheries resources. Conservation Enforcement Officers have an exciting and rewarding outdoor job that demands strength, character, and a high degree of self motivation. Officers are generally assigned at a rate of two per county.
