Ames also received the 2011 Northeast Conservation Law Enforcement Chief’s Association “Officer of the Year Award” for his exemplary work as a Maine Marine Patrol Officer. Officer Ames is a nine-year veteran of the Bureau of Marine Patrol and is currently assigned to DMR’s Castine/Stockton Springs Patrol which covers the Penobscot River region.

“Officer Ames established himself as an aggressive and dedicated officer early in his career while assigned to the very busy Stonington/Deer Isle Patrol,” said Lieutenant Jay Carroll. “Ames is extremely active within his area and focuses a great deal of effort toward lobster enforcement.”
