WITTEN NAMED MARINE PATROL OFFICER OF THE YEAR

MOREHEAD CITY - Carter Witten has been named 2004 Marine Patrol Officer of the Year by the North Carolina Wildlife Federation. The award is given in recognition for overall outstanding conservation efforts and achievements.
The mission of the Marine Patrol is to ensure sustainable marine and estuarine fisheries for the benefit of the people of North Carolina. Their jurisdiction includes all coastal waters and extends to 3 miles offshore. Officers monitor 2.5 million acres of water and over 4,000 miles of coastline.

Witten began his career with Marine Patrol in 2001, as a field officer in Swan Quarter. Currently, his patrol area includes Carteret and Craven counties. He previously served on the Havelock Police Department.

"Carter Witten is an exceptional officer who is equally as effective educating school children about our coastal treasures as he is working on the water protecting our fisheries,” said Col. Joe Lynch, head of the Marine Patrol. "He has earned the respect and confidence of all who have worked with him."

Witten, along with his wife Joy and their son Taylor, resides in Carteret County and attends the Christ Church of New Bern. During his free time Carter enjoys scuba diving and hunting.
