On Monday, Vicksburg Deputy Police Chief Mike Bryant was recognized for 30 years of service by the Board of Mayor and Aldermen.
Mike Bryant started serving in 1992 and has shown great passion for his career and the city. Mayor Geroge Flaggs, Jr. referred to Bryant as “A great man of honor”.
Bryant was elevated to the position of Deputy Police Chief in July, 2021. Bryant served as internal affairs investigator/accreditation manager, watch commander, commander of the support services division, patrol sergeant, field training officer, and patrolman. Bryant holds a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice and has received specialized law enforcement training from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Mississippi Law Enforcement Training Academy, Center for Domestic Preparedness, Public Agency Training Council and Institute for Police Technology and Management.
“We talk about retaining police officers, but Michael is a prime example,” said Flaggs. “I’m willing to bet you he’s had every opportunity to go many places for more money. He chose to stay here because Michael is a man of integrity and a man of passion and he’s passionate about this city.”
Flaggs went on to state that Bryant is an example of those who we should strive to emulate.
“30 years of wearing a badge of honor… Tell your family we appreciate their sacrifice because they sacrifice too,” said Flaggs to Bryant. “You have protected and served us for 30 years, and I know nothing but good things about you.”
