Brady's official start date is Oct. 1, and he comes to the city on the heels of interim Chief Kristal Pompa, who ran the Rollingwood Police Department for a year after former Chief Max Westbrook resigned in September 2018.
Brady had served as captain for the Corpus Christi Police Department since 2010. Prior to that, he rose in the ranks within CCPD, starting as an officer in 1993 before becoming a sergeant and then a lieutenant.
"I am truly humbled and honored to be selected to lead the outstanding officers of the Rollingwood Police Department," Brady said. "Many chiefs would be envious to work in a community that values and supports their officers as they do in Rollingwood."
Ashley Wayman will also replace Robyn Ryan as Rollingwood's city secretary Sept. 3. Ryan retired in August after 11 years with the city.
