CONCORD, NH – Delayne Brown of Contoocook, NH, has been promoted to Lieutenant in the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s Law Enforcement Division. Brown will be based at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s regional office in Durham, NH, and will supervise a unit of Conservation Officers patrolling southeastern New Hampshire, including the state’s coastline and its vast marine resources.

“Delayne has consistently exhibited a strong work ethic and a level of professionalism that exemplifies what today’s wildlife officer should strive to be,” said Fish and Game Law Enforcement Division Chief Colonel Kevin Jordan.

He worked as a GIS Coordinator and Biological Technician for the Wildlife Division, part-time as a Police Officer in Pittsfield, and as a Deputy Conservation Officer for the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s Law Enforcement Division – all before taking a full-time position as a Conservation Officer in 2002. After successful completion of his trainee year, Brown was assigned to the Whitefield /Jefferson patrol area until 2006, when he then transferred to District 4 in southwestern New Hampshire, patrolling in Hillsboro, Henniker, Weare, and eight other towns until his promotion to Sergeant in 2017.

Brown is a member of Fish and Game Law Enforcement’s Advanced Search and Rescue Team, a former member of the NH Fish and Game Dive Team, a Field Training Officer, and a member of the New Hampshire Conservation Officer Honor Guard.

In 2006, Brown received a New Hampshire Congressional Law Enforcement Award for his dedication and professionalism in Law Enforcement. In 2014 he was honored as the New Hampshire Wildlife Officer of the Year by Shikar Safari International.
