Oregon State Police (OSP) Deputy Superintendent Chris Brown announced this week some management reassignments that included a temporary Director for the OSP Fish & Wildlife Division.  Lieutenant Mike Dingeman will fill this position during the temporary reassignment of Captain Walt Markee to oversee the Northwest Region operations from region headquarters in Salem.
Markee replaces Captain Cal Curths who will lead a special project to upgrading the OSP record management system.  The temporary assignments were made to help facilitate an upcoming project and are expected to last from six to eight months. 
Dingeman will be assisted at the OSP General Headquarters Fish and Wildlife Division by Lieutenant Jeff Samuels and Lieutenant Andy Heider.
The OSP Fish and Wildlife Division enforce the state’s fishing and hunting regulations on behalf of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.  “Enforcement is an important issue to hunters and anglers,” says ODFW Director Roy Elicker.  “We’re looking forward to working with Lieutenant Dingemen in his new role in enforcing Oregon’s fishing and hunting regulations,” Elicker says. 
The OSP Fish & Wildlife Division works to ensure compliance with the laws and regulations that protect and enhance the long term health and equitable utilization of Oregon's fish and wildlife resources and the habitats upon which they depend.  Other important services to the public include public safety and enforcement of criminal and traffic laws.
