CONCORD, NH -- Dave Walsh has been selected to fill the Administrative Captain’s position for the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s Law Enforcement Division. In his new role, Walsh will be in charge of off-highway recreational vehicle (OHRV) enforcement and safety education, including oversight of training for enforcement patrol procedures and tactics, as well as dealing with legislation related to the rapid growth of OHRV activity in New Hampshire. Walsh will serve as Fish and Game’s link to the Emergency Operations Center at the Department of Safety’s Office Homeland Security and Emergency Management, and will coordinate activities of the field force, in cooperation with other law enforcement personnel, in addressing emergencies such as drownings, lost persons, hunting accidents, forest fires, and floods.


A 20-year veteran of NH Fish and Game, Walsh patrolled in the Nashua area for five years before being transferred to southwestern New Hampshire. There, he rose to the District 4 Sergeant position, serving as the Assistant Chief until his promotion to Lieutenant and District 4 Chief in 2014.


"Dave has been very successful in his role conducting special undercover investigations for New Hampshire and Vermont. His tenure includes major successful investigations and prosecution of significant cases," said Fish and Game Law Enforcement Chief Kevin Jordan.  "He has also demonstrated outstanding leadership, accomplishing his duties with a high standard of fairness and professionalism."


Walsh earned a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of New Hampshire in 1995. During his years with Fish and Game, he completed the intensive four-week Marine Law Enforcement Training Program at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Georgia. Walsh is a Field Training Officer and leads the Conservation Officer oral board interview team. He is a charter member of the airboat team, a member of the firearms instructor team, and a trained background investigator. He was honored by the Northeast Conservation Law Enforcement Chiefs Association as the Officer of the Year in 2002.
