Bryan 2
Law Enforcement Drone Team Lead

In 2014, I retired from the Marine Corps at the rank of Major (O-4) after 24 years of service, and moved to Benton, LA.  I was hired by the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office and graduated my police academy class as the Class Honor Graduate.

I was selected to join the Bossier Sheriff’s Office Drone Unit in 2017, and have served as a drone pilot flying numerous missions in support of law enforcement operations.

In 2019 I was promoted and selected to lead the Bossier Sheriff’s Office Drone Unit.  In this role, I've made great strides in the development and training of my team of six pilots.  

Aviation C2 History

In 1998 I was selected to attend Marine Corps Officers Candidate School and reported to 2nd Low Altitude Air Defense (LAAD) Battalion, Cherry Point, NC for duty as a Platoon Commander. Ironically, My first introduction to drones was their use as targets, and his task then was to shoot them down with Stinger missiles!

I also Served at Marine Tactical Air Control Squadron-28 Cherry Point, NC in 2005 for duty as an Aviation Close Battle Coordinator and deployed in this capacity to Operation Iraqi Freedom 04-06.

In 2006 I was assigned to II Marine Expeditionary Force to serve as the Airspace Planner in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom 06-08 where he personally managed the airspace for western Iraq.  In these roles, I've gained critical knowledge and insight into airspace, aviation systems and aviation command and control.
