Stallings Police Chief Minor E. Plyler, Jr. has retired after over 35 years of service in law enforcement/emergency services. Appointed as Stallings Police Chief in June 2012, Plyler has served five law enforcement agencies over his career including a five-year stint as the Director of Emergency Communications/911 for Union County.
Plyler joined the Town of Stallings in May 2005 in the Patrol Division and continued on to serve as Detective and Patrol Lieutenant before ending his career as the Chief of Police.
“Chief Plyler provided excellent leadership with the Stallings Police Department,” said Mayor Wyatt Dunn. “His service to the Stallings community has been felt by all and gave us an invaluable source of security. He’s leaving a legacy within the Stallings Police Department the highest standards for service and integrity. We congratulate Chief Plyler on his well-deserved retirement and wish him the best in your future.”
Plyler is looking forward to his retirement but will miss his colleagues at Stallings.
“It’s been an amazing journey and I can’t imagine a better place to wrap it up. I guess now it’s just time to find out what’s next,” Plyler said.
The Town Manager will be working with an outside agency to find Plyler’s replacement.
“Chief Plyler has led the Stallings Police Department with integrity, accountability, competency, and established a clear vision for SPD as a department that focuses on community policing. Without a doubt, Stallings is a better place because of his leadership,” said Town Manager Alex Sewell. “On a personal level, I will miss Minor’s humor, calm demeanor, and commitment to helping his fellow human being. The Town will use a best-practices approach to evaluating and selecting our community’s next police chief with the goal of filling the position by Fall 2019.”
