L.D.W.F. AGENTS EXCEL IN LITTER ENFORCEMENT

Release Date: 10/03/2007

For the second consecutive year, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Sr. Agent Toby Miller received the Keep Louisiana Beautiful Litter Enforcement Officer of the Year award.  Miller, a Kentwood resident, accepted the award at the Oct. 4 meeting of the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission.


Keep Louisiana Beautiful Executive Director Leigh Harris presented the award.  She thanked Miller for his work and dedication to litter prevention.


Harris also presented Col. Winton Vidrine, head of the LDWF Enforcement Division with the Keep Louisiana Law Enforcement Award, presented to the law enforcement agency that has done the most to promote a clean Louisiana in the previous year.  Lt. Col. Jeff Mayne noted that in the past year the division as a whole issued 336 gross litter citations and 478 simple litter citations, more than any other law enforcement agency in the state.


Col. Vidrine said that the division's aggressive stance on litter stems from their desire to keep our natural areas and roadsides pristine.
