EKU Police Chief Retires

Published on February 09, 2022

After a 25-year career in law enforcement, Eastern Kentucky University Chief of Police Brian D. Mullins retired January 31, 2022. He served as chief for 10 years. 

EKU was his first job in law enforcement after graduating from Lindsey Wilson College. He served at EKU for five years before joining the Richmond Police Department for three years. He decided to return to Eastern to finish out his career because he enjoyed the family atmosphere of the department and the opportunity to help college students. 

Mullins’ four-year stint in the Army prompted him to consider a career in law enforcement. 

“We thank Chief Mullins for his years of dedicated service to the EKU campus community,” said President David McFaddin. “The department is stronger today because of his leadership.” 

Assistant Police Chief Brandon Collins will serve as interim police chief while the department undergoes a search for Mullins’ replacement.

Mullins plans to spend more time with his wife Nadya and their four-month old baby boy Layth.
