Steve Henry has been selected as the City of Midland’s new Police Chief. In this role, Henry will oversee all aspects of the Midland Police Department, including its 243 employees.
Henry is scheduled to begin his duties as Chief on January 1, 2018. He takes over from Interim Chief Price Robinson, who retired in August after serving as Chief for eight years.
“Midland is a town where anything is possible through hard work and opportunity. As Police Chief, I intend to use the opportunity entrusted to me to ensure all Midlanders feel safe and able to pursue their goals,” said Henry. “I am truly honored to serve in this role,” he added.
Henry most recently held the position of Chief Deputy at the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office in Arizona, a post he held for seven years before retiring in 2016. Prior to his time with Pinal County, Henry served with the Chandler, Arizona Police Department for 14 years, holding various positions in Community Services, Traffic, and SWAT.
City Council will consider the ratification of Henry’s hire at the December 12th Council Meeting.
