Bryan’s local law enforcement career began in 2005, when he was hired as a jailer for the Clay County Jail. “In 2008, I was hired by the police department,” he said. Bryan is happy with the new dimension that’s been added to his job with the Vermillion Police Department. His position as school resource officer was made possible with the help of Police Chief Matt Betzen. “We decided that four schools was a lot for one resource officer, and it made sense for us (the Vermillion Police Department) to step up and help make sure that the schools are safe and secure,” Bryan said. A sense of service attracted Bryan to a career in law enforcement. “I’m pretty big on serving your community and your state, of giving more of yourself,” he said.

You can’t save the world, but maybe you can keep your little corner of it safe. “When the school resource officer position opened, I really like the idea of serving (in that role). The students have a job, and that’s to become educated, and if we’re expecting these people to become the next generation of leaders, we need to help them do that,” Bryan said. “They shouldn’t have to worry about their safety when they come to school.” The majority of his time is spent at the middle school. “Deputy Pederson and I have sort of split up (the district) east and west,” he said. “He has the high school and Jolley (Elementary) and then I’m here and at Austin Elementary. “I’ve had a lot of fun getting to know all of the students,” Bryan said. “I like all of them, and I hope they are enjoying my being here.” Sell it Local!
