Commissioner Sean Tindell has appointed a candidate to oversee operations within the Mississippi Department of Public Safety.

Patrick Beasley has been dubbed the director of the newly created MSDPS Internal Affairs, Standards, and Professionalism division. The unit will consist of representatives from each sworn division that is under the umbrella of the department of public safety.

Beasley has spent years in various professional settings spanning from law enforcement, legal practice, and military service. Before joining MSDPS, Beasley served as an assistant district attorney in multiple districts throughout the state, director of the consumer protection division within the Mississippi Attorney General’s Office, a narcotics officer for the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics, and a military police officer for the United States Army, serving as both a commissioned and non-commissioned officer.

“Since I have been commissioner, transparency has been a top priority. Creating this Internal Affairs Division will further strengthen our commitment to holding our officers accountable and strengthening integrity within our organization,” Tindell said. “Patrick Beasley brings a wealth of experience, integrity, and a commitment to upholding the highest standards of accountability and transparency to his role as Director of Internal Affairs.”

The newly appointed director will be tasked with keeping MSDPS employees compliant with the law while also ensuring that a high standard of professionalism is executed.
