Ernest R. "Roger" Tully has been serving as the Chief of the Alexandria Police Department since August 14, 2010. After 29 years of service with the Baton Rouge Police Department (BRPD), he retired as a Captain. Chief Tully began his law enforcement career on May 4, 1981 and worked in progressively responsible positions at BRPD. Tully’s last assignment was as Uniform Patrol Commander over 400 plus officers. Prior to that, Tully served as Chief of Staff for retiring Baton Rouge Police Department Chief Jeff LeDuff. Tully deployed a number of crime fighting efforts under Chief LeDuff.
Among Chief Tully’s most notable accomplishments was the coordination of the Baton Rouge Police Department’s initial Accreditation with CALEA (Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies). In his time at the BRPD, Tully converted the department from a paper-driven to a paperless reporting system using the same system that the Alexandria Police Department uses today.
Chief Tully is a Theology Graduate of the Pacific Coast Baptist Bible College in San Dimas, California.
