A Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement agent was honored at the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission meeting this morning, Dec. 1, in Baton Rouge.
Corporal John Miller, of Rayville, was recognized as this year’s National Association of State Boating Law Administrator’s “Boating Law Enforcement Officer of the Year” award for Louisiana.
Corporal Miller has been an agent for over 15 years and mainly patrols the waterways in northeastern Louisiana. He has been a lead boating education instructor the last nine years and has certified more students in boating education than any other instructor in the state during that time.
“Corporal Miller maintains a professional work demeanor, appearance and is always assisting his co-workers and the general public,” said Major Clay Marques, the state’s boating law administrator. “He takes enforcing boating laws on the water very seriously making the waterways in his district safer for the boating public. He is a major asset to the department and more specifically to the safe boating mission.”
Corporal Miller is also homemade boat inspector and responsible for coordinating safe boating outreach programs in his region. He was also instrumental in improving the new NASBLA approved online boating education course.
