Bryan Eure receives Marine Patrol Officer of the Year award

8-point rule

 

 

MOREHEAD CITY — Bryan Eure is the Marine Patrol Officer of the Year. And with nearly 24 years’ experience, he is also one of the most seasoned officers on the force.

He is the person many of his fellow officers, even supervisors, go to when they have a question or need advice.

“He is dedicated and knowledgeable, and he is a mentor to other officers,” said Marine Patrol Col. Carter Witten.

The wealth of guidance Eure has given over the years is one of the reasons his colleagues nominated him for the North Carolina Wildlife Federations’ Governor’s Conservation Achievement Awards Marine Patrol Officer of the Year. Eure received the award Thursday at the Marine Fisheries Commission meeting in Beaufort.

Eure is also known for his attention to safety issues and attention to detail.

“He’s that guy that’s going to say, ‘Watch out for that power line!’ or ‘Watch out for that log in the water!’,” said Marine Patrol Major Jason Walker.

And this attention to detail is reflected in his law enforcement investigations.

“Bryan makes sure that every element of an offense is thoroughly investigated and proven before he makes a charge,” Walker said.

Eure started his career in law enforcement in the area where he grew up with the Roanoke Rapids Police Department in Halifax County, but his love of the outdoors attracted him to a different kind of policing with Marine Patrol.

“It was a good fit, combining my love for the coastal area with my experience in law enforcement,” Eure said.

He works in the Wrightsville Beach area and in other areas of New Hanover County enforcing gear regulations and size and creel limits, conducting license and dealer inspections, patrolling waters for potential violations, monitoring polluted and nursery areas, and more.

On July 4, 2018, Eure may very well have saved the life of a boater who had been struck in the leg by a boat prop. Eure applied a tourniquet until paramedics arrived, an act for which he later received the Division of Marine Fisheries’ Humanitarian Award.

Also, Eure was part of a team of Marine Patrol officers who aided emergency services with search and rescue efforts during flooding from Hurricane Florence.

Off the water, Eure provides law enforcement expertise on an internal Division of Marine Fisheries team that reviews and develops marine fisheries rules.

Eure lives in Wilmington with his wife, Krystal, and sons, Emil and Joshua.
