16 Dec

The City of Hutto is proud to announce the selection of Peter Scheets as Police Chief.  Peter began his law enforcement career in 1996 for the City of Bryan, Texas.  He has held numerous positions with the City of Bryan including patrol officer, detective, patrol sergeant, detective sergeant, assistant chief, deputy chief, and even acting chief of police.  Peter’s position at the time of his hiring as Hutto’s police chief was Assistant Chief of the Administrative Services Bureau.  Prior to his service in Bryan, Peter served meritoriously in the United States Army.

Assistant City Manager David Mitchell had this to say about the hiring of Scheets, “Peter brings to Hutto a wealth of policing experience and knowledge from Bryan where he was also an outstanding leader for their department.  One of the things that impressed me most about Peter’s approach to policing matters is that he truly believes in servant leadership. Peter also has shown a willingness to get involved in the community beyond his job duties.  I am excited about the leadership and vision that Peter will be bringing to the Hutto Police Department and the City as a whole.”

Outgoing City Manager Edward Broussard added the following about the selection of Scheets: “Peter’s philosophy on community policing, empowerment of staff, and creating innovative solutions to neighborhood problems became an important factor among the numerous citizens, Police Department employees, and City staff who interviewed the finalists for the position.  Peter’s experience in both the Bryan Police Department and U.S. Army will elevate the Hutto Police Department to the next level and develop staff to meet the future demands for the changing community.”

Scheets is expected to begin work for the City effective January 9, 2012.
