3:09 PM · May 13, 2022

The Oregon State Police is pleased to announce that the Fish & Wildlife Team of the year for 2021 goes to the Roseburg Fish & Wildlife Team. The team was presented with the award last week at the Roseburg Area Command. The team is comprised of members from the Roseburg office, led by Sergeant First Class Bowersox. The team members are Senior Trooper Bachmeier, Senior Trooper Baimbridge, Senior Trooper Stone, and Trooper Kercher. The nomination of the Roseburg team noted their professionalism, and initiative, and described them as “the epitome of the Oregon State Police’s values: honor, loyalty, dedication, compassion, and integrity.” In early 2021, the Roseburg team brought to close a multi-year investigation into a prolific poacher with the execution of a search warrant on the subject and his residence. As a result of the search warrant and investigation, multiple charges were brought forth on the subject. Throughout 2021, the Roseburg team conducted effective enforcement by boat patrols, WEDs, night flights, and patrolling on horseback. The team also participated in multiple public outreach events, assisted with Search & Rescue incidents, and had several boat recoveries on the Umpqua River system. When you look at the criteria for this award: professionalism, teamwork, mentorship, leadership, dedication to protecting Oregon’s citizens and natural resources, going above and beyond the call of duty, and thinking outside the box to address issues; the Roseburg team exemplifies all of these traits. Join us in congratulating and thanking the Roseburg Fish & Wildlife Team for all of their hard work and dedication. They are an outstanding representative of this award, the Division, and the entire Oregon State Police. Via Oregon State Police
