THE MISSOURI DEPARTMENT OF CONSERVATION HAS ADDED 10 NEW AGENTS TO ITS ENFORCEMENT STAFF. One of those agents will serve in southeast Missouri’s New Madrid County. The conservation agent class of 2016 graduated during a ceremony in Jefferson City last week. During the ceremony the agents were pinned — that means they received their badge — and they also took the oath Nicholas Bommarito will work in New Madrid County. The new agents bring the Department of Conservation’s force to 180. Their responsibility is to serve the public and protect Missouri’s fish, forest and wildlife.
