Press Release

Dodd Promoted to Law Enforcement Section Chief with ADCNR

April 09, 2012

Kevin Dodd has been promoted to Law Enforcement Section Chief with the Alabama Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries (WFF). As chief, Dodd will oversee the daily operation of the Law Enforcement Section including 130 conservation enforcement officers and various support staff. He will also be responsible for working with other state agencies and organizations throughout Alabama to promote conservation law enforcement.
 
Dodd, who started his career as a laborer in the WFF Wildlife Section, was hired as a Conservation Enforcement Officer in Baldwin County after receiving his Bachelor of Science in Wildlife Biology from Auburn University in 1984. Prior to his promotion to chief, Dodd served as Assistant Chief of the Law Enforcement Section for six years.
 
In 2009, Dodd graduated from the National Conservation Leadership Institute (NCLI), a non-profit conservation organization focused on preparing and retaining conservation leaders. As an NCLI Fellow, Dodd was one of only 36 conservation professionals from across the country chosen to participate in the program that year.
 
“Kevin’s experience and training will serve the Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division well today and in the future,” said Fred Harders, WFF Acting Director. “His leadership will ensure that the Enforcement Section will do well in these challenging times.”
 
Dodd enjoys hunting and fishing and is still in touch with his childhood fascination in bugs, bats, lizards and  all other forms of wildlife that enrich the outdoor experience. “I feel extremely fortunate to have a career in the field of conservation, something that’s been so important to me my whole life,” Dodd said.
 
Dodd and his wife Tammy reside in Prattville with their children Caleb and Maggie.
 
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 Lands, State Parks, and Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries.
