Delta State’s Jeffrey D. Johns has been elected chairman of the university and college section of the International Association of Police Chiefs.

Johns, who has served as chief of the Delta State University Police Department since 2016, previously held the position of vice chair under Chief James Lyons of Augusta University. Johns’ two-year term went into effect during the recent IACP annual conference.

“IACP has molded my vision of what being a police chief entails and has been a great value to my career,” Johns said. “I am humbled and honored to be elected by university and college chief peers to this position.”

The IACP, which has over 32,000 members across over 1,700 countries, is a recognized leader in global policing committed to advancing the safety of communities worldwide.

Prior to taking over in Cleveland, Johns headed the Holmes Community College District Police Department following an extensive career as a deputy sheriff with the Hinds County Sheriff’s Office.
