A historic day for our Police Department on Wednesday, January 5, 2022, as Capt. Amanda Thomasson was promoted to Assistant Chief!

Mayor Jake Windham, Asst. Chief Amanda Thomasson and Police Chief Dean Scott

While Chief Thomasson becomes the first woman in the position, she has earned it through hard work and perseverance. Thomasson started with PPD 21 years ago as a dispatcher and spent time on patrol, in investigations, as a sergeant, as a lieutenant, and most recently as captain.


Thomasson says she is humbled by the promotion and promises two things, to continue the great protection of the people in Pearl and have the back of each and every officer. Congratulations to new Assistant Chief Amanda Thomasson.
