How To Address a Game Warden?

#1

Thought this would be a good place to ask --

How does one address a Game Warden ? For example, one could address a DPS member as Trooper Smith, or a member of a SO as Deputy Smith.

In all instances, younger or older than you the respectful salutation is "Sir or Ma'am."

They deserve the respect.

The are actually officers, so that is appropriate as well.

State Trooper: Trooper Montgomery
City PD: Officer Montgomery
County Deputy: Deputy Montgomery
Game Warden: Warden Montgomery

The way I have done it for years. HOWEVER, if you can identify rank, then the rank would proceed their name. IE, Captain Montgomery, Sergeant Montgomery, etc.

I'm just kind and respectful, but I'm not a very formal guy. On the otherside of the coin, I've never been addressed as Taxpayer Rich by any government employee before. It would be nice to be shown a little respect for all of my hard work too.

Every police officer I've had contact with in an official capacity used "Mr." and "Sir" when addressing me. That's plenty respectful in my book.

Well, in two cases, "Ralph" and "Frank" worked too.

One was my lieutenant in the NY State Park Police, the other was a friend who eventually became a warden.

You being a taxpayer doesn't distinguish you from them. They pay them too.

As a private sector person, I earn everything my family needs plus enough to help fund the government, there's isn't a single government employee that pays for everything his family needs plus the needs of others. That's why they used to public servants. Not to mention how insulting it is that same public employees are union members as well. The taxpayers pay the salaries and union dues. To protect the government employee from the government.
