Dave Hayward



Dave is a consultant in the Regulatory and Public Sector team at our Grimsby office.

He is a former senior police officer having held the positions of Divisional Commander, Detective Chief Superintendent and Head of Professional Standards. Dave retired from the Police at the end of 2009 having completed 31 years service.

Dave specialises in complex and politically sensitive or high-profile investigations, most recently the investigation of major whistle-blowing allegations in a mental health NHS trust; taxi licensing issues at a district council; code of conduct complaints within a city council following the publication of a Public Interest Report and allegations of corruption within a city council's planning department. He also advises on education, professional regulation and firearms licensing.

Described by clients as “deeply reassuring in a crisis”, Dave enjoys wildlife spotting on early morning walks with his dogs and spending time with his grandchildren.
