THE STORY: UTPB Police Chief Mike Tacker has turned in his resignation. Tacker will become the new University of Texas System Assistant Director of Police on Aug. 6 — effectively making him the second highest ranking police officer in the UT System.


>> “Great job Chief! We will miss you. I would like to thank you for the great job you have done and we hate to see you go.”

>> “I’m glad to see him go. This is the best thing for him and UTPB. After the whole mess that he did with the MPD officer and not firing the officer that was totally involved, he brings the type of cover ups and mishandling that UT Systems must be looking for. Maybe this time when UTPB hires a chief, it’ll be the guy who had a higher education which was overlooked by one who didn’t have anything.”
