Mike Young, a 38-year veteran of the North Richland Hills Police Department, will serve as the city’s Interim Police Chief following the retirement of Police Chief Jimmy Perdue, City Manager Mark Hindman announced on Thursday. 

“Chief Young has extensive knowledge of the department’s operations and policies and the utmost respect and care for his colleagues and the community he serves,” said Mr. Hindman. “I have confidence in his ability to lead the North Richland Hills Police Department in continuing to be the best and most professional department it can be.”

Chief Young began his career with the North Richland Hills Police Department in 1985 and was promoted to Sergeant in 1997. Early in 1999, he promoted to the rank of Lieutenant and later in the same year was promoted to Captain. In 2013, he was promoted to Assistant Chief. 

During his tenure, he has overseen every division of the department include patrol, traffic, SWAT, criminal investigations, internal affairs, training, hiring, range master, dispatch communications, jail, records management, logistics, fleet, budget, and evidence preservation. In 1989 he received the Medal of Honor, the department’s highest award.

Chief Young holds a Master Peace Officer’s License with the State of Texas. He is a graduate of the 206th Session of the FBI National Academy, the Advanced Management College at the Institute for Law Enforcement Administration, and the 38th session of the PERF Senior Management Institute for Police. He earned a Bachelor of Arts and Science Degree from the University of North Texas and a Master’s Degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice from the University of Texas at Arlington. 

Prior to joining NRHPD, he served four years in the United States Air Force. Mike and his wife, Tanya, have been married for 41 years.  They have two children and six grandchildren.
