CONCORD, NH — David Walsh of Antrim, NH, has been promoted to Major and is the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s new Assistant Chief of Law Enforcement.
“The Law Enforcement Division is fortunate to have an officer with Dave’s background and abilities to assist us in managing the Department’s responsibilities and promoting its initiatives,” said Fish and Game Law Enforcement Chief Colonel Kevin Jordan. “Dave has done an outstanding job in his current position as Captain while also overseeing Off Highway Recreational Vehicle Enforcement, which includes Safety Education Training, the Registration Program, Enforcement Patrol Procedures and Tactic Training, and Legislative representation as it relates to the OHRV explosion we are experiencing in New Hampshire.”
A 22-year veteran of NH Fish and Game, Walsh patrolled in the Nashua area for five years before being transferred to southwestern New Hampshire.

“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,” continued Jordan. “He has also demonstrated outstanding leadership, accomplishing his duties with a high standard of fairness and professionalism.”
