Dave Wilkins
Regional Enforcement Manager, South East

Fisheries Enforcement Support Service

Dave Wilkins recently retired from Sussex Police after 30 years’ service as a detective inspector, having spent most of his service on CID, Special Branch and Major Crime teams. Prior to joining the police, he completed an ecology degree – and maintains a keen interest in all wildlife.

Dave’s lifelong interest in fishing began aged five, and he remains a passionate angler. He enjoys all types of angling, both salt and freshwater; his main interest, however, is pike fishing. Dave also collects vintage fishing tackle and regularly fishes with split-cane rods and centre-pin reels. Dave has been a Phase 1 Volunteer Bailiff for over three years and recently successfully completed Phase 2 training – so will be working voluntarily in direct support of the Environment Agency and empowered to check rod licences and deal with certain fisheries offences.
