Conservation Warden Rick Rosen has been named regional warden for the 19-county Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources West Central Region.
Rosen was tapped by Chief DNR Conservation Warden Randy Stark for the region’s top warden position, vacated in 2012 by Warden Mark Burmesch, who now serves as the Bureau of Law Enforcement’s business manager.
“The candidate pool for the West Central Region Regional Warden position was outstanding,” Stark said, adding the decision was difficult and exciting. “It was difficult because the quality of all the candidates was great, and it was exciting because we knew the final choice is going to help put the department and the Bureau of Law Enforcement warden service in a position to advance well into the next decade. Rick’s law enforcement and relationship building skills, knowledge and abilities will do that for us.”
