Lewisville names Kevin Deaver new chief of police
Lewisville City Manager Donna Barron announced today that Assistant Chief Kevin Deaver has been selected as the next Chief of Police for the Lewisville Police Department. Deaver will succeed Chief Russ Kerbow, who is retiring in Augustafter more than 40 years of service.
“I am extremely humbled by this opportunity to serve the men and women of this department and the community," Deaver said. “I appreciate the confidence city management has in me for this very important role.”
Deaver, who has been with LPD since 1998, was selected after a statewide search that began back in March. As part of the candidate search, the City brought in Southwest Leadership Services, a professional consulting firm that focuses primarily on police and fire promotional assessments.
“I believe that Chief Deaver represents the Lewisville Way in his management style, his commitment to building trust between the community we serve and our city organization and his commitment to employee involvement in the decision-making process,” Barron said.
Deaver has more than 29 years of law enforcement experience. He began his law enforcement career with the San Angelo Police Department in February 1989, then joined the Lewisville Police Department in August 1998. During his career, Deaver has worked as a Patrol Officer, Motorcycle Traffic Officer, Canine Officer, Narcotics Detective, Patrol Sergeant, Narcotics Sergeant, Patrol Lieutenant, Community Services Captain, Patrol Captain, Administrative Services Assistant Chief, and the Patrol Operations Assistant Chief. In addition, he served as a field supervisor for the North Central Texas Narcotics Task Force.
“I couldn't agree more with Ms. Barron and the selection of Kevin Deaver as our next chief of police,” Kerbow said. “He is a man of great commitment, moral character and integrity. Chief Deaver will certainly carry our department forward following the Lewisville Way and remains committed to the department's values of Duty, Honor, Service and Commitment.”
Deaver has a Bachelor of Arts and Applied Sciences with a concentration in Criminal Justice, Public Affairs/Community Service, and Sociology from the University of North Texas. Deaver also is a graduate of the Institute for Law Enforcement Administration’s School of Police Supervision and Management College and the FBI-Law Enforcement Executive Development Association Trilogy Series. He holds a Master Peace Officer Certification from TCOLE.
Currently, he serves on the Executive Board of Directors for Youth and Family Counseling and is a member of the Lewisville Noon Rotary Club.
