Help us in congratulating Josh Dilley, Grant Brown, Bob Thompson, Louis Moeller, Jarrod Poley, Ben Gallowich and Joe Stadterman.
Dilley was awarded the John D. Hart Wildlife Officer of the Year and Brown was given the 2016 Outstanding Ranger award. Awards are based upon an officer and rangers actions not only in law enforcement but for their work in education, management, community engagement, habitat protection and team work.
Bob Thompson, CPW’s lead investigator, also received the 2017 Cliff Coghill Career Achievement Award from the Colorado Wildlife Employees Protective Association (CWEPA), the fraternal organization for wildlife officers. This award recognizes Colorado wildlife officers who have provided 20 years or more of dedicated service to the state’s wildlife resources.
Additionally, Louis Moeller, Jarrod Poley, Ben Gallowich and Joe Stadterman all received awards. These officers deserve recognition for their depth of commitment to skill and education.
Dilley, an exemplary officer who has been with the agency since 2000, is the district wildlife manager in North Park. In the course of his enforcement duties, Dilley has investigated and convicted multiple wildlife violators. In 2016, Dilley provided critical coordination during a wildland fire that threatened to consume over 38,000 acres of prime wildlife habitat. Dilley also serves on the North Park Habitat Partnership Program committee and as the 4-H Shooting Sports Leader, including coaching and chaperoning six students at the Colorado State Fair Shooting Sports competition.
"North Park is a small community where Josh performs many roles. If you need help, regardless of when or where, Josh will be there for other officers and the community,” said District Wildlife Manager Jeromy Huntington. “He has mastered the ability to have a community that respects him, poachers that dread him and family that loves him. Josh is an outstanding game warden and has earned the officer of the year award.”
Brown, who has worked his way up in the ranks at CPW since he was a temporary seasonal employee in 2001, was recently a senior park ranger at Boyd Lake State Park and has since been promoted to manager of CPW’s Boating Safety Program. Brown is passionate about educating the public on boating safety. He is a boat safety, boat operator, and boating under the influence standardized field sobriety test instructor who regularly teaches classes to the public and other officers. Brown also received the Colorado Boating Officer of the Year award in 2011. Brown tirelessly patrols the waters he manages and frequently receives calls for enforcement advice from boating officers around the state. Additionally, Brown is an ice rescue and defensive tactics instructor and a field training officer.
“Grant is widely known as one of the state’s boating experts. His dedication to the statewide boating program is unrivaled, as he has been involved with it since his time as a temporary employee,” said Heather Dugan, assistant director of CPW’s law enforcement and public safety section. “He is a trusted, genuine leader who has the respect of both his co-workers and the public.”
Additionally, CWEPA presented Dilley a Life Saving Award for his actions in two difficult rescue evacuations in the backcountry of Jackson County. Dilley was awarded along with Louis Moeller, a State Forest State Park park ranger, and Jarrod Poley, undersheriff of Jackson County who received the CWEPA Citizen Award of Appreciation because he is not a member of CWEPA.
Ben Gallowich, a CPW wildlife technician, also earned a Life Saving Award from CWEPA honoring his actions as first responder to an October 2016 traffic incident near Wellington.
Finally, Joe Stadterman, park manager at Lake Pueblo State Park, received the Colorado State Park Employee Association Exceptional Service award from the state park officers’ fraternal organization the Colorado State Parks Employees Protective Association (CSPEPA). Stadterman earned this award for his assistance in the rescue of three juveniles on the Arkansas River in June 2016. This award is presented to CPW employees or volunteers whose actions directly contribute to saving a life or are deemed an act of valor. ... See MoreSee Less
