Marine Board Chair, George Tinker (Coos Bay), Sr. Deputy Anthony Hackman and Marine Board Director, Scott Brewen
The Oregon State Marine Board recognized the efforts of Sr. Deputy Anthony Hackman of the Malheur County Sheriff’s Office with an “Outstanding Achievement Award” at their annual post-season Law Enforcement Conference, held on Monday, September 26 in Eugene.
Sr. Deputy Hackman’s tireless work and dedication are evident in the numbers.  Hackman considers the School Education Program extremely important and leads the number of students instructed on boating and water safety in Oregon.  Hackman has also been a huge advocate of the Marine Board’s Aquatic Invasive Species Prevention Program, educating everyone he comes in contact with about the importance of cleaning, draining and drying boats after each use to prevent spreading any invaders. 
Hackman’s performance is above and beyond, patrolling the Snake River during the fall and winter months and exceeding the time on his jurisdictional waterbody.  Hackman also takes great ownership in the care and maintenance of the patrol boats and keeping a stellar maintenance log.
