The Angling Trust has now established its lead in delivering the Fisheries Enforcement Campaign - properly locating fisheries offences within the much bigger picture of Rural, Wildlife, Business, Hate and Organised Crime, in addition to raising awareness and encouraging intelligence-sharing and partnership working.

Retired West Midlands police officer Kevin Pearson (pictured, above) is Superintendent Bailiff for the Birmingham Anglers' Association and the latest Key Volunteer to join the Angling Trust Enforcement Team.

Kevin said: "My role with the Birmingham Anglers' Association has emphasised to me the importance of the need to apply policing methods to this problem - and I am delighted to have this opportunity to support this essential work".

Kevin will be delivering the session on "Angling Club Bailiffs: Best Practice" at the North East Fisheries Enforcement Workshop (FEW)  in York on Saturday 9 May 2015

Angling Trust National Enforcement Manager Dilip Sarkar MBE, a retired West Mercia Police officer, said: "We are delighted to have the support of other experienced policing professionals like Nevin Hunter, the former Head of the UK National Wildlife Crime Unit, who also joined our team recently, and now Kevin Pearson.

Moreover, Kevin's experience running the country's largest angling club's bailiffs will prove invaluable, especially, in the absence of a Midlands Voluntary Bailiff Service and with the forthcoming Operation LEVIATHAN in mind - a partnership between West Mercia, Warwickshire and Gloucestershire Police, and the Environment Agency, details of which will be released soon
".
