TPWD Names New Law Enforcement Director

AUSTIN, Texas – Pete Flores, a 20-year veteran game warden who has worked all over the state, has been selected to lead Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s state game warden force of approximately 480 officers in the field.

Col. Flores was selected after a month-long search and this year marks his 20-year anniversary as a game warden. Flores’ broad range of experience includes service as a field warden in Chambers and Brazos Counties, a District Captain in Beaumont and San Antonio, a Major in San Angelo and most recently, the division’s Lt. Col, or Deputy Division Director.

“Texans can expect the continuing of community-oriented conservation law enforcement. May Texans always say, ‘see that Officer in the green truck, that’s my Game Warden,” Flores said.

Flores’ experience in working across the state makes him very attuned to what is needed in each area. From the Gulf Coast to the Trans-Pecos of West Texas to Central Texas, he’s been there and done the jobs in the field.

Deputy Executive Director for Operations, Scott Boruff, said Flores is the right person for the job.

“I am very impressed with his integrity and commitment to the mission of the department, as well as his wealth of experience,” he said. “We are honored and pleased that he will be our new Colonel and look forward to working with him,” Boruff said.

Flores, originally from Laredo, graduated from Texas A&M University and assumes his new post immediately.
