On Tuesday, Steve Bryan was sworn in as the new Chief of the Madisonville Police Department.
Bryan first began his career in law enforcement in 1995 with the Kentucky State Police as a uniformed Trooper for seven years, before moving on to several other investigative positions, including General Investigations, Special Investigations, and Drug Enforcement.
Before retiring from KSP in 2017, Bryan served on the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force.
After that, Bryan spent two years with the Hopkins County Sheriff's Office assigned to the Madisonville-Hopkins County VICE/Narcotics Unit.
Bryan then joined MPD in 2019 to run the Electronic Crimes Division.
Bryan is the successor to former MPD Police Chief Chris Taylor, whose retirement was announced earlier in August.
