CONCORD, N.H. -- Newly promoted Lieutenant William Boudreau has been tapped as the District 4 Chief for the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department's Law Enforcement Division. Based in the Department's Keene, N.H., regional office, Boudreau supervises Fish and Game Conservation Officers patrolling southwestern New Hampshire, an area featuring premiere hunting and fishing opportunities.


If Boudreau looks familiar, it may be because he is one of the main characters on the North Woods Law: New Hampshire television series airing on Animal Planet. "Bill has demonstrated his unique abilities to work with a television crew on a regular basis to ensure the North Woods Law program is an accurate depiction of the skill sets of our staff and how the state and citizens benefit from our efforts," said Jordan.


Boudreau has been a NH Fish and Game Conservation Officer since 2004. Early in his career he patrolled seacoast New Hampshire communities. In 2009, he requested and received a transfer to southwestern New Hampshire.


Boudreau and his conservation canine partner "Ruby" have been instrumental in the success of the Fish and Game K-9 Team. "Ruby is an amazing dog and they make an awesome team together," said Fish and Game Law Enforcement Chief Colonel Kevin Jordan. "And that is a direct result of Bill’s commitment and dedication to make this K-9 Team what it is today."


"Bill has proven himself as a very capable leader by successfully supervising many challenging and complex search and rescue missions within District Four over the years," said Jordan. Located within Boudreau’s current patrol area, Mt. Monadnock is a busy area for search and rescue activity.


Boudreau has received numerous commendations for his efforts as a member of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Dive Team. In addition, he is a Field Training Officer and is considered a leading member of the Joint Enforcement Team (JEA) because of his extensive knowledge of coastal and commercial fishing regulations and complex enforcement tactics.


In 2009, Boudreau was selected as the New Hampshire Officer of the Year by the Northeast Conservation Law Enforcement Chiefs Association.
