Beyond The Badge – Officer Rex Vickers

Officer Vickers grew up in Paola, Kansas but spent a lot of time in Topeka with family, so when his twin brother joined the Topeka Police Department and encouraged him to do the same, it was a natural progression for him as he already had an interest in working with the department and the community.

Before joining the Topeka Police Department, Rex went to the US Air Force Academy where he graduated in 2003 and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the USAF. Through Rex’s diverse career, he’s worked as a satellite communications officer, as a Dept of Defense Contractor in several engineering capacities, doing surveillance operations in Afghanistan as a contractor with the Marine Corps, and he currently serves as a member of the Air National Guard here in Topeka.

Rex has been with TPD for three years now where he’s worked on several notable cases in his position as a Patrol Officer. He says he enjoys his job because he’s always been service oriented and gravitates to positions where he’s able to help people. He likes that through his current position he is able to make Topeka a better place to live by keeping the streets safe and helping others.

When he’s not at work, he enjoys golfing and being outdoors. Officer Vickers is a huge asset to this department and the Topeka community and we thank him for all his hard work and dedication!vickers
