RALEIGH, N.C. (Nov. 29, 2012) — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has promoted Todd Radabaugh to captain for District 2, where he will manage and supervise enforcement operations for hunting, inland fishing and boating, and coordinate boating safety and hunter education programs in Pitt, Beaufort, Greene, Lenoir, Duplin, Pender, New Hanover, Onslow, Jones, Carteret, Pamlico and Craven counties.
A 22-year veteran with the Wildlife Commission, Capt. Radabaugh was previously a lieutenant in the district. His predecessor, Rick Venable, recently retired.
“This region is a community that values outdoor recreational activities like hunting, fishing and boating,” Capt. Radabaugh said. “Along with my fellow wildlife officers, I will continue to work for conservation and public safety, and be accessible to citizens and their concerns.”
Originally from Havelock, Radabaugh and his wife Leanne have lived in Pender County since 2001. They have two grown sons, Zach and Kirk.
“In addition to this accomplishment, Capt. Radabaugh will attend the FBI National Academy in January, which will further strengthen his abilities,” said Col. Dale Caveny, chief of law enforcement for the Commission. “He is nationally recognized for his efforts in boating safety instruction, and has worked tirelessly with judicial officials to help protect our state’s boating public.”
