Paul Thomas
Regional Enforcement Manager, Eastern England 

Fisheries Enforcement Support Service

A former airborne soldier, a former detective constable with Gloucestershire Constabulary and latterly running a successful private investigations agency, Paul has an extensive background in investigation and enforcement.

He has received numerous commendations and decorations throughout his career including one for thorough investigations and successful prosecutions for street robbery offences in Gloucester city centre and another for “displaying tenacity and professionalism” during a search that led to the recovery and seizure of more than £83,000 from a prolific drug dealer.

Paul said: “I am honoured and truly proud to be part of the Angling Trust and working with the Environment Agency delivering a robust and effective angling enforcement campaign with positive outcomes for all anglers. The Building Bridges project and Voluntary Bailiff Service are the way forward for angling today, and as a truly passionate angler I am very excited by the opportunity to put something back into the hobby that has held me spellbound for more than 40 years.”
