KFO Field Manager John Christensen comments, “Ranger Lloyd is a great addition to our staff and brings  with him a tremendous understanding of resource issues combined with an effective law enforcement approach and appreciation for our area’s unique qualities.”

Lloyd began his law enforcement career with the BLM in March 2009 and comes from the Grand Junction Field Office in Colorado where he covered the McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area. As KFO ranger, Lloyd will patrol 1.4 million acres of BLM-administered land in Lincoln, Uinta and Sweetwater counties. “I look forward to getting to know the people and the area,” states Lloyd. He adds, “My goal is to work with staff to resolve issues administratively and help preserve our land and resources.”

Prior to joining the BLM, Lloyd was an Army Corps of Engineers park ranger for eight years and worked in Washington, Idaho, South Carolina and Georgia. While with the Corps, Lloyd spent six months in Iraq helping to rebuild a water treatment plant for 400,000 people, a university, three medical clinics, a hospital, and two bridges. He also spent three months in Louisiana working to remove debris in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

A graduate of Fort Hays State University with a bachelor’s degree in wildlife management, Lloyd also played receiver for the Division II Tigers football team. He and his wife, Nickie, and their three children enjoy camping, fishing and hunting in the great outdoors.

BLM rangers are responsible for conducting high visibility patrols, establishing contact with the public, enforcing federal laws and regulations, and ensuring the safety of BLM employees and public land users. They also assist local police and sheriff departments and other federal and state agencies when called upon.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
