Beyond The Badge – Officer Bryan Stricklin
Officer Stricklin grew up in Kansas City, Kansas and attended Wyandotte High School. After graduating, he played football for Highland Community College and joined the Army where he served for eight years. He is a member of the National Guard in Topeka, and deployed to Iraq in 2010 – 2011.
In 2012, he joined the Topeka Police Department and has served in patrol, as a Field Training Officer, and as a Community Policing Officer.
Officer Stricklin grew up knowing that he wanted to help people and is happy to be in law enforcement where he gets the chance to interact with the community, and hopes to affect the future of Topeka in a positive way.
When Officer Stricklin isn’t busy at work, he enjoys working out, lifting weights, and is a member of TPD’s Powerlifting team.
Officer Stricklin is a wonderful asset to both the department and the Topeka community, and we thank him for his dedication and service!
