State Environmental Conservation Police
Who We Are
The Connecticut Environmental Conservation Police is comprised of Conservation Officers stationed throughout Connecticut. All EnCon Police are certified as police officers by the Connecticut Police Officer Standards and Training Council. Conservation Officers are required to complete the same police academy training as all municipal police officers in Connecticut and maintain this certification through ongoing in-service training. Due to the complexities of the job, Conservation Officers routinely receive specialized training above and beyond that of municipal police officers in areas related to the EnCon Police missions. In addition to their state authority, Conservation Officers are also appointed as special deputy agents for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Marine Fisheries Service so they may enforce federal fisheries and wildlife laws.
The State Environmental Conservation Police are under the command of Colonel Chris Lewis. There are three districts, East, West and Marine, in addition to the Hartford Headquarters Command Staff.
The Hartford Headquarters Command Staff is responsible for overall command and administrative functions such as personnel, equipment procurement, purchasing, training, policies and procedures and coordination with other DEEP Divisions and other State and Federal law enforcement agencies.
