SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. – The Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Law Enforcement Division is pleased to announce that Major Stephen Adams recently graduated from the National Conservation Law Enforcement Leadership Academy (NCLELA) at the National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown, WV.
“It is vitally important to have Rangers who provide effective, efficient and thorough conservation law enforcement. And, to accomplish this, you must have a Command Staff that is willing to seek out educational opportunities that will help them continue to provide solid management and leadership into the future,” said DNR Law Enforcement Division Director Col. Eddie Henderson. “I commend Major Adams on his commitment to continuing education and I greatly appreciate his contribution to conservation law enforcement and to our Division.”
