CULLMAN, Ala. – Lifelong Cullman resident and 24-year Cullman Police Department veteran Jason Mickle has been promoted to assistant chief. Mickle joined the department as a full-time patrol officer in 1998. 

During his career Mickle has served on the K9 Unit, in Criminal Investigation, as a firearms instructor, team leader, training officer, on the Tactical Unit and as a commander. Mickle also teaches active shooter response to law enforcement officers at the Northeast Alabama Law Enforcement Academy and in schools, churches and to residents. 

“Based on Jason’s past performance in supervisory roles, his professional knowledge and experience, he was the logical choice for the position,” Cullman Police Chief David Nassetta shared. “The assistant chief’s position has a lot to do with overseeing the day-to-day operations of the department, so it’s important to have someone who has a good working knowledge of the entire department. Most importantly is that Jason has the ability to see where the department needs to be in the future, and the steps that we need to take to get there.” 

Mickle is a 1994 graduate of Cullman High School. He has been married to his wife Rebekah for 19 years and they are the proud parents of two Cullman High students: Jacey, a senior, and Jake, a sophomore. The Mickles are members of Cullman First Baptist Church where Rebekah Mickle works as the children’s minister and Jason Mickle serves as a deacon and Sunday School teacher.
