The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has welcomed five new wildlife officers to serve the state’s sportsmen.
The new wildlife officer additions and their county assignments are Ethan Davis (Trousdale), Kendall Fletcher (Polk), Jamie Greenwood (Putnam), and David Holt (Hamilton). Michael Bobel, who has been a wildlife technician, will serve as a wildlife manager at Old Hickory Wildlife Management Area.
The officers are required to complete TWRA training and graduate from the Tennessee Law Enforcement Training Academy.
Once they complete their training, they will begin their assignments at various locations.
TWRA Executive Director Ed Carter commissioned the new officers at the ceremony held July 7 at the Ed Jones Auditorium in the Ellington Agriculture Center.
