Russ Racop - April 13, 2021


Governor Asa Hutchinson appointed former U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration official William J. "Bill" Bryant as the 19th director of the Arkansas State Police on January 12, 2015.

The then 58-year-old Bryant automatically assumed the rank of colonel and took over the state's largest law enforcement agency.

Twenty years of Bryant's nearly four decades in law enforcement were spent at the Little Rock District office of the DEA. During a stint at DEA headquarters in Arlington, Va., Bryant served as chief of congressional affairs under then-administrator Asa Hutchinson.

Bryant, now 64 (DOB: 07/29/1956) resides in Little Rock.
