Deputy Chief Brandon Berryhill has been named as the Acting Police Chief, after David Boggs retired on Tuesday, August 22 from the Broken Arrow Police Department (BAPD).


Boggs announced his retirement in March of this year, after serving as BAPD’s Police Chief for six years. He plans to go into the teaching and consulting fields. He and his family will continue to live in Broken Arrow.


Berryhill has served with BAPD for 23 years, including the last 6 years as Deputy Chief of Police. He has experience overseeing nearly every aspect of the department. Berryhill holds both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Criminal Justice and is a graduate of the F.B.I. National Academy and the Senior Management Institute for Police of Boston University.


The City of Broken Arrow is currently in the process of interviewing candidates for Police Chief. City Manager Michael Spurgeon expects to complete the recruitment process by end of October 2017.


The BAPD currently employs 146 sworn officers. The Department is nationally recognized for its community policing programs, which other agencies around the country use as a model for their programs.
