Bryan A. Jarrell was sworn in Thursday night as the new Prescott Valley police chief by Magistrate Keith Carson.

Jarrell, who has been working for the department since Nov. 25, 2013, had his badge pinned on by Vice Mayor Lora Lee Nye. Larry Leadford, Jarrell's police partner from 1986 to 1991, came up from his Gold Canyon home to watch the ceremony.

Jarrell and his wife Tina have three children, ages 28, 25 and 22. They have one grandchild and another on the way. Their youngest son is a senior in college studying to be a teacher.

Jarrell loves outdoors activities, and it's a good thing, because he has been living in his motorhome since arriving in November. Tina is back in Michigan packing up their house as the Jarrells wait for their Prescott Valley house to be completed; they should be able to move in around Feb. 16.

Some hobbies high on Jarrell's list are golfing (18 handicap), camping, mountain biking and running, and he added he may give kayaking on the local lakes a try.

Jarrell is looking at two areas for his immediate attention at the Prescott Valley Police Department. The first is looking at procedures that may not be fair, consistent or objective, such as the department promotion process. Another concern is the age and mileage of some of the cars the officers use. Nineteen of the cars have more than 100,000 miles.
