NEWS RELEASE

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission announced this week that Colonel Jeff Crow, chief of the agency’s enforcement division, has been selected to serve as the agency’s deputy director.

AGFC Director Mike Knoedl called Crow a true leader and looked forward to working alongside him. “Jeff’s extensive leadership experience is invaluable to this agency. I expect great things from him and I think he’s the right person for this position.

Crow said he was excited about the new challenges facing him. “It’s a great honor to work at this agency,” he said. “I want as much feedback from the employees as I can get. I want them to be personally engaged in our decisions,” Crow explained.

Crow began his law enforcement career in 1986 as a wildlife officer with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. In 1996 he accepted a position with the Arkansas State Police where he served in patrol, investigations and training and on the department’s SWAT Team. As a trainer he was responsible for recruit and in-service training, focusing on critical skills, use of force and leadership development.

After 25 years in law enforcement, he accepted a position as a law enforcement instructor for the University of Arkansas’s Criminal Justice Institute. In 2012 he took over the AGFC Enforcement Division.

Crow served in the United States Marine Corps for 25 years, both on active duty and in the reserves. A combat veteran of Operation Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom II, he retired in 2007 at the rank of Sergeant Major.
He has an Associate’s degree in Criminal Justice from National Park Community College in Hot Springs and a Bachelor of Science degree in Organizational Management from John Brown University in Siloam Springs. He is currently enrolled in the Masters of Public Administration program at Arkansas State University.

Crow and his wife of 23 years, Susanna, reside in Bismarck. They have a 20-year-old son who is serving in the Marine Corps and a 17-year-old daughter who will be a senior at Bismarck High School next year. He and his family are members of Hickory Grove Baptist Church in Bismarck, where he serves as trustee.
