Bryan officials name Scheets acting police chief
City of Bryan officials are naming Deputy Police Chief Peter Scheets the acting chief of the Bryan Police Department as current acting chief Bobby Whitmire’s contract through the Texas First Group expires today.
Whitmire was named acting chief on May 1st to oversee the department during an internal affairs investigation into an incident that occurred in November at the home of Bryan Police Chief Tyrone Morrow.
Previous to Whitmire’s hire, Scheets served as the acting chief for five months. City Manager David Watkins states he was extremely pleased with Scheets’ service during those five months and says citizens can expect the continued quality professional police service during Scheets’ stay as acting chief.
Watkins says, “Bobby Whitmire provided superb professional expertise during the last few weeks. We are now fortunate to have Peter Scheets step back in as the acting police chief. Peter’s professionalism and integrity are above reproach and he will well serve the citizens of Bryan and the Bryan Police Department until this process is complete.”
