CONCORD, N.H. - In a ceremony on October 17, 2008, at New Hampshire Fish and Game Department headquarters in Concord, Craig Morrocco was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant in Fish and Game's Law Enforcement Division. He will serve as the District Four Chief, overseeing Fish and Game law enforcement activities and search and rescue missions in southwestern New Hampshire.
"It is my distinct pleasure to congratulate Conservation Officer Sergeant Morrocco on his promotion to Lieutenant. Morrocco was chosen because of his strong work ethic and outstanding contributions to the Law Enforcement Division over his 20-year career. The experience and skills this officer brings to the Lieutenant position will serve him well in future endeavors and the challenges that await him," said Colonel Martin Garabedian, Chief of Fish and Game's Law Enforcement Division.
Morrocco began his career at N.H. Fish and Game as a Conservation Officer Trainee in 1988. He worked two years on the Nashua patrol, then in 1990 transferred to the Peterborough patrol area, where he has served for the past 18 years. He was promoted to Sergeant in July 2003.
In addition to his normal Fish and Game law enforcement duties, Morrocco has coordinated the Oral Board and background investigations for Conservation Officer Trainee applicants. He also has served as a Field Training Officer for new officers and as Nonlethal Weapons Instructor for the Division.
Morrocco's past accomplishments include being named the 1990 Northeast Conservation Law Enforcement Chiefs Association Conservation Officer of the Year. In 1994, he earned the Fran Stuart Conservation Award for fisheries management from the Monadnock Chapter of Trout Unlimited. He is a 1987 graduate of Unity College in Maine, where he earned a Bachelor's of Science degree in Park Management.
