New Chief of Police - Troy Beebe
In a strong vote of confidence, Provo City Municipal Council voted unanimously to promote interim police chief, Troy Beebe to Provo City police chief. Chief Beebe was sworn in during the December 13 city council meeting.
Chief Beebe brings 29 years of law enforcement experience, serving five years with the Utah County Sheriff’s Department and 24 years with the Provo Police Department. As interim chief, Beebe accepted Provo City’s accreditation by the Utah Chiefs of Police Association for demonstrated high professional standards and is improving department transparency with the creation of a civilian public information role.
As the community’s public safety figure, a police chief sets the tone not only for the department, but for the entire city. Chief Beebe has shown leadership, collaboration and a deep love for the Provo community. He has deservedly earned the respect and support of this department and city.
Provo City has earned its reputation as one of the safest and healthiest communities in the country by being committed to public safety values of community, partnership, accountability, professionalism and respect. Our high national public safety rankings, recently earned accreditation, and national recognition for our state-of-the-art public safety building show our continued dedication to a safe community.
Chief Beebe was appointed as acting Provo City police chief upon the resignation of former Police Chief Fred Ross on October 17, 2022.
