   Jerry Jenkins, a 30-year veteran of the DNR Law Enforcement section, has been promoted to the rank of major and has relocated to Charleston . Prior to his promotion, Jenkins served as captain for the DNR District II Law Enforcement Office in Romney. Jenkins was promoted during a ceremony January 13, 2006 , in the Charleston office, which was attended by his family, DNR Director Frank Jezioro, Law Enforcement Section Chief Col. James Fields, and several of his friends from the DNR Law Enforcement Section.


  Jenkins was employed by the Division of Parks as a conservation aide in 1975, but he transferred to the Law Enforcement Division as a conservation officer a year later and was assigned first to Pleasants County and later to Mineral County . In 1989 he was promoted to sergeant and assigned to the Berkeley/Morgan/Jefferson counties area. His promotion to lieutenant in 2000 put him in the Romney District II Office, and he was promoted again to the rank of captain in 2004, continuing to serve in Romney until his promotion to the rank of major in January.
