John retired as the Director of the Maine Criminal Justice Academy in 2020 after spending 43 years in various positions in law enforcement. He lives in the western Maine town of Strong & has been an avid outdoorsman to include: hunting, hiking, canoeing & camping. Most recently he has become very involved in snowmobiling & ATVing. For the past 2 years, John has been building & clearing trails, & building bridges for both the local ATV & snowmobile clubs. John is passionate to make sure that everyone has public access to the High Peaks Mountains and surrounding areas. This means that we must work in partnership with all landowners so everyone is happy for hiking, biking, canoeing, ATVing & snowmobiling in Maine.
