Mansfield ISD named a new leader to reside over its police department. Greg Minter, previously the district’s assistant police chief, is now the police chief.
Minter has served 22 years in law enforcement; 15 of those years were in MISD.
The chief of police position became vacant after Jimmy Womack announced his retirement. Minter said he is ready to continue the tradition of excellent leadership.
“It’s a joy to be able to be part of such a great school district and be able to lead such a wonderful department,” said Minter. “The safety and security of students and staff is always a top priority. That’s my purpose, and that’s my passion.”
Minter is a Master Peace Officer and a graduate of the Bill Blackwood Law Enforcement Leadership Command College.
The Texas native began his career with the Azle Police Department and created its first school resource officer program during his tenure. Prior to beginning his law enforcement career, Minter proudly served in the U.S. Army.
The Mansfield ISD Police Department is fully authorized as a police agency. All 50 of MISD's police officers are commissioned by the State of Texas.
