City of Brenham Police Department Promotes  Lloyd Powell to Assistant Chief of Police

On Monday, June 5, 2023, City Manager Carolyn Miller and Police Chief Ron Parker announced the promotion of Captain Lloyd Powell to Assistant Chief of Police. Powell began his employment with the Brenham Police Department in 1997 as a dispatcher and from there was promoted to patrol. It wasn’t long before he transferred to the Investigations Division where he worked for 10 years. He was promoted to Sergeant on Patrol where he served for five years before again being promoted to the rank of Captain. As Captain, he has served over the Administration Division, Detective Division, and at the time of the Assistant Chief of Police promotion, was serving over Operations.

City Manager Miller states, “Assistant Chief Powell has earned this promotion through hard work and dedicated service to our community, and we are thankful for his continued commitment to the department and officers.” 

Powell was born and raised in Brenham, Texas and his family has been a part of the community for multiple generations. He states, “I chose Brenham PD because Brenham is home. When I decided to get into law enforcement, I wanted to protect the people that I know and love. The citizens here are not just numbers, they are my family and friends, and the people who have molded me. If I’m going to risk my life I could think of no better place to do it.”
