Busby has been in leadership positions within the department for several years, serving as training officer and head of the SWAT team and as a sergeant and a lieutenant in the patrol division. He has also worked with the accreditation of the department through the Commission on Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). The Talladega Police Department was the eighth in the state to earn accreditation under CALEA’s standards, and maintaining that accreditation will require a commitment to professionalism by the entire department.
Busby worked his way up through the ranks with the department, after prior law enforcement experience in Weaver, Oxford and the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Department, and served the city well during his years with the department.
It’s a well-deserved promotion and we wish him well in the years ahead.
