Haley to succeed Wetz as FPD patrol division lieutenant
Brian Haley was named the new Fredericksburg Police Department patrol division lieutenant on May 24 to succeed Steven T. Wetz, who was recently promoted as the chief of police.
Haley holds a master peace officer certification and is a firearms instructor, a taser instructor and a “less lethal” instructor.
He has served with the Fredericksburg Police Department for 11 years, nine of which have been as a patrol sergeant, since he was promoted on June 23, 2004.
Haley graduated from Mason High School in 1992 before attending Angelo State University, where he played football for the ASU Rams from 1992-1994.
While at ASU, Haley said he became interested in a career in law enforcement. “I had some friends who worked in the prison system, and it always intrigued me,” Haley said.
He pursued a career in corrections/law enforcement and got a job with the Eden Detention Center in Eden, from 1995-1999, where he was a member of the prison’s Special Operations Response Team (SORT.)
Haley then transferred to Livingston, and worked at the Polunski Unit (Texas Death Row) from February 1999 to September 2001. He also served there as a member of the prison’s SORT team.
