Prescott Valley Police Chief Bryan Jarrell on Monday announced his retirement as of July 1, 2019 Chief Jarrell has been with the department since November, 2013.
”After more than 34 years in law enforcement, and 5 ½ years as your chief, I have decided to return to Michigan to be closer to family. It has been humbling and an honor to have served the citizens of Prescott Valley and to have worked with some of the finest individuals I have ever met,” Chief Jarrell said.
Town Manager Larry Tarkowski said the Town has been fortunate to have Chief Jarrell’s experience and professionalism for the past 5 ½ years. “One of his legacies, aside from streamlining many administrative processes, is that Prescott Valley for the past two years has been recognized as having the lowest crime rate in Northern Arizona. That’s a tribute to his leadership and the outstanding work of the men and women of the Prescott Valley Police Department. He has helped to shape the department for the future. We wish him well in his future endeavors.”
The Town of the Prescott Valley has begun a nationwide search for a new police chief.
