CONCORD, NH -- James S. Juneau of Gilmanton has been promoted to Major and is the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department's new Assistant Chief of Law Enforcement.


"The Law Enforcement Division is fortunate to have an officer with Jim's abilities and expertise to assist us with promoting the Department’s initiatives," said Fish and Game Law Enforcement Chief Kevin Jordan. "Jim is a capable leader who cares about the well-being of his officers. He has always gone above and beyond the call of duty to strengthen the vital relationships between our constituents in the community and the Law Enforcement Division."


Among his many duties, Juneau coordinates and organizes activities of the field force, in cooperation with other law enforcement personnel, in response to emergencies such as drownings, searches, hunting accidents, forest fires, and floods. He manages hiring, training, and assignments of Conservation Officer Trainees, and oversees Field Training Officers. He is also responsible for federally funded programs involving Fish and Game Law Enforcement, such as the Joint Enforcement Program on the coast and enhanced enforcement on the Canadian border.


Juneau has served 20 years as a New Hampshire Conservation Officer. After his trainee year, he was assigned to the Alton patrol area, rising to Sergeant in 2004. In 2010, he was promoted to District Lieutenant and became the District Five Chief, overseeing Fish and Game Law Enforcement in south/central New Hampshire. Juneau joined the headquarters administrative management team at Fish and Game Law Enforcement with his promotion to Captain in 2015.


In 2006, Juneau was selected as the New Hampshire Wildlife Officer of the Year by the Shikar-Safari Club International. He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Animal Science and Natural Resources from Cornell University.
