Jeffrey Yarbrough has been selected by City Manager Andrew Freeman as the next police chief for the city of Tulia. Yarbrough currently works in the Austin area and is a 19 year law enforcement veteran. He has accumulated extensive law enforcement, leadership, and investigative experience from his service in municipal, county, and state agencies. “I am truly humbled to be selected to serve as Tulia’s next police chief. It is important to me to get to know the citizens of Tulia in order to develop and strengthen lasting partnerships within our community,” said Yarbrough.

Most recently, Yarbrough served as senior investigator for the Chief Disciplinary Counsel of the State Bar of Texas. Yarbrough previously served as a sergeant with the Texas Attorney General’s Office, investigator with the Bastrop County Sheriff’s Department, captain with the Lee County Sheriff’s Department, and patrolman for the city of Giddings.

“I am excited about the opportunity to work with the officers within our police department,” Yarbrough said. “I have no doubt that together we can enhance the quality of life for all members of our community. I look forward to making myself available and serving our city, as we work together to make Tulia a great place to live, work, and play.”

Yarbrough holds a master peace officer license and instructor certification. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Texas at Brownsville and a Master’s of Science degree in Human Resource Development from Texas A&M University at College Station. Yarbrough is pursuing a second Master’s degree in Public Administration from Sam Houston State University. He also attended Northwestern University Center for Public Safety’s Senior Management Leadership Program, in Evanston, Illinois, and the Law Enforcement Leadership Program at Blue Ridge Community College in Flat Rock, North Carolina.

Yarbrough is expected to begin his tenure with the Tulia Police Department mid-January 2014.

For any questions, please contact Andrew Freeman at afreeman@tulia-tx.gov



Comments:
The city of Tulia has a population of approximately 5000 residents and the police department has eight commissioned peace officers.

Yarbrough will be replacing Jim McCaslin who was dismissed in May of 2013 after a lengthily stay in the hospital prevented him from performing his duties.

McCaslin had been with the department since 1976.
