Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR) Enforcement Officer Timothy Joe Lindsey was awarded Conservation Enforcement Officer of the Year at the 2007 Governor’s Conservation Achievement Awards banquet held by The Alabama Wildlife Federation (AWF) on Friday, August 3, 2007 at the Embassy Suites in Montgomery.
Lindsey is a four-year veteran of the ADCNR Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries (WFF) Division and excels in his professional capacity as a Conservation Enforcement Officer in Madison County in District I. His efforts are focused on violators who represent the greatest danger to the public and who do the most damage to natural resources. Lindsey has an outstanding record of apprehending dangerous violators and is always prepared for trial, with any relevant evidence needed to try a case. His knowledge of the outdoors and desire to promote the highest ethics regarding the wildlife and fisheries of Alabama are equally impressive. Additionally, he is actively involved in organizing events aimed at getting children outdoors including introducing youth to fishing.
WFF Law Enforcement Chief Allan Andress describes Lindsey as a conscientious and exemplary officer. “Joe is one of our finest young officers and does an outstanding job,” Andress said. “We are proud to have him represent the Department with his professionalism and commitment.”
The AWF Governor’s Conservation Achievement Awards (GCAA) are the most prestigious conservation honor in Alabama. Over the past 30 years, the AWF has presented these awards to individuals and organizations that make great contributions to the conservation of Alabama’s wildlife and related natural resources.
The GCAA was created to promote leadership by example and in turn increase conservation of the natural resources in the state of Alabama including its wildlife, forests, soils, water and air. The program is designed to bring about a greater knowledge and awareness of conservation practices and projects and to give proper recognition to those persons and organizations that make outstanding contributions to the natural resource welfare of their community and state.
The Alabama Wildlife Federation, established by sportsmen in 1935, is the state’s oldest and largest citizens’ conservation organization. The mission of the AWF is to promote conservation and wise use of Alabama’s wildlife and related natural resources as a basis for economic and social prosperity.
The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources promotes wise stewardship, management and enjoyment of Alabama’s natural resources through five divisions: Marine Police, Marine Resources, State Parks, State Lands, and Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries.
