Texas Game Warden Heath Bragg Named SEAFWA Officer of the Year

AUSTIN— Texas game warden Heath Bragg was recognized as the Southeastern Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (SEAFWA) Officer of the Year award recipient at today’s Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission meeting. This is the 47th year that this award has been presented to a Texas game warden.

Game warden Bragg has been with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department for 17 years and his stations in East Texas through his career include Tyler, Angelina and Nacogdoches counties.

Bragg’s knowledge of fish and wildlife enforcement and understanding of how types of fish and wildlife crimes are committed has been a huge contribution to his career, evident by his apprehension of more than 15 different groups of illegal netters and more than two dozen boating while intoxicated arrests.

During his tenure as a game warden, Bragg was awarded the 2005 National Wild Turkey Federation Officer of the Year, is a Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCLOE) and Firearms instructor, and a law enforcement officer water survival instructor.
