New wildlife police boss in WNC

Written by 

The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has promoted Tim Sisk to the position of captain for the state’s western counties, covering a district that stretches from Madison to Cherokee counties.

Sisk will manage enforcement operations for hunting, fishing and boating, and coordinate boating safety and hunter education programs. He will supervise 23 wildlife officers and a hunter education specialist in Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Swain, Macon, Jackson, Haywood, Transylvania, Madison, Buncombe and Henderson counties. 

The 26-year veteran with the commission was previously a lieutenant in the district. His predecessor, Greg Daniels, recently retired. 

“This region has a rich heritage of hunting and fishing, boating and wildlife watching,” said Sisk. “We have numerous game lands, state and national forests and parks, rivers and lakes that are world-renowned for outdoor recreation. I look forward to my new position and continuing role in serving conservation and public safety in these beautiful mountains.”

Sisk holds a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from UNC- Charlotte and is a 1987 graduate of the Wildlife Basic Law Enforcement Training School.
