Back in December 2019, a 22-year veteran of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources’ Conservation Warden Service was named the next chief warden. Casey Krueger, a Langlade County native, was sworn into the position on January 9th.
Hired in January 1998, Krueger served as a field warden in Oconto and Columbia counties. In 2008, he was promoted to the rank of lieutenant/warden supervisor of the Park Falls Warden Team based in northern Lincoln County. In 2012, the Langlade County native then was promoted to captain of the South-Central Region and moved to Dane County. He earned his Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
