Acting Chief Inspector Dan Hiles

Dan joined Sussex Police in 2003 where he worked in the response team in Brighton and Hove and in East Sussex before becoming a Custody Sergeant. He later worked in Neighbourhood Policing as an Inspector and then Partnership Manager.

Dan then took the role of force lead for the Tactical Enforcement Unit which provides dedicated and targeted support particularly focused on preventing harm linked to serious organised crime.

After setting up the Tactical Enforcement Units on division he is now back at Brighton as Acting Chief Inspector.

Dan is a father to three children and in his spare time enjoys spending time with his family.
