Troy University names George Beaudry as new police chief

TROY, Ala. (AP) — Troy University has a new chief leading its campus police department.

With more than 30 years of law enforcement experience, Montgomery County Sheriff's Office Capt. George Beaudry assumed command of the department Thursday, The Montgomery Advertiser reported.

“Chief Beaudry has a history of community engagement in law enforcement, enjoys a solid reputation for leading a diverse force of deputies and has strong credentials from his training and educational background,” John Schmidt, Senior Vice Chancellor for Student Services, said in a news release announcing his hiring. “We are pleased to welcome Chief Beaudry to the Troy University family.”

Beaudry has been with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office since 1995, but has about 30 years of policing experience to include four years in the U.S. Air Force. He’s led the sheriff's Patrol Division since 2015, having served previously in patrol, investigative, administrative and special operations divisions.

Beaudry has a bachelor’s in justice and public safety from Auburn University Montgomery and is a graduate of the FBI National Academy. He completed additional command staff and leadership training at the National Command and Staff College in North Carolina.

“The biggest point for me initially is accessibility,” Beaudry said. “I want students and parents to know they have direct access to me and our officers as well. I want our entire community to know that I’m here and available to them.”

Beaudry replaces John McCall, who was fired in June over social media comments relating to the death of George Floyd.
