OKLAHOMA CITY — Department of Public Safety Commissioner John Scully has named Major Brent Sugg as the 28th Chief of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Sugg’s employment with OHP began in March of 1999 when he joined the 51st Academy. Prior to becoming a trooper, Sugg worked as a Norman Police officer. In his 20 years with OHP he has served as the commander of several different divisions, including the Emergency Services Unit, Training, Investigations and Troop A, which covers the Oklahoma City metro area, the largest field troop in the Highway Patrol.

Sugg graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership. He received his graduate degree from the University of Oklahoma graduating with a Masters of Arts in Administrative Leadership in 2018. Sugg is a graduate of the 275th session of the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia in 2019.

“Chief Sugg brings professional and proven leadership to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and he is widely respected throughout the agency,” said Scully. “I look forward to working beside Chief Sugg as he takes command of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol as the 28th Chief of the OHP.”   

“‘I’ve known Brent Sugg for nearly 20 years and he is a man of character and righteousness and I know him to be extremely competent and fair,” said Secretary of Public Safety Chip Keating.  “I look forward to him working alongside Commissioner Scully in advancing Governor Stitt’s vision of Oklahoma being a top 10 state. I thank him for his continued service to our great state.”
