The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) today announced that the State Environmental Conservation Police (EnCon) has been awarded national accreditation by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators.
“This national accreditation is a credit to the men and women of EnCon,” said Colonel Kyle Overturf. “Boaters in our state can be assured that when they hit the water this summer, they are being protected by some of the most well trained officers in the country. We are thankful to the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators for the recognition.”
“Our EnCon department is second to none,” said DEEP Commissioner Robert Klee. “It is with great pride that I congratulate Colonel Overturf and his entire department on this well-deserved national recognition. Next time you see an EnCon officer out on the water or the trail, congratulate them on this honor.”
