 Interim Police Chief Brian Stallings


Stallings, a native of Richfield, N.C., began his law enforcement career in the Salisbury Police Department (SPD) in 1996 as a patrol officer. Over the course of his tenure he has also served as a victim’s advocate, an investigator, police sergeant overseeing general investigations and as a lieutenant directing the criminal investigations division.

In 2014, he was promoted to captain where he currently manages the department's traffic unit, patrol division, grant research and issuance of ABC, parade and street closure permits.

“I am honored to name Capt. Stallings as the interim police chief for the City of Salisbury until a permanent replacement is named in late spring or early summer 2016,” said City Manager Bailey. “I have had an opportunity to work with Capt. Stallings, and during that time he impressed me with his knowledge of the police department and law enforcement in general. I appreciate his willingness to serve during this transition period.”

Stallings double-majored in criminal justice and sociology at Pfeiffer University. He also holds a MBA from the same institution. In addition to his educational accomplishments, he has an Advanced Law Enforcement Certification from the North Carolina Justice Training and Standards Commission, and was previously named the SPD’s “Veteran Officer of the Year.”​
