2023 SEHIA Conference - NOV 6-10, 2023 - Pittsburgh, PA - Hotel Registration Open
D/Sgt Bryan Fuller enlisted in January 1995 as a member of the 111th Michigan State Police Trooper Recruit School. Upon graduation from recruit school, he was assigned to the Hastings Post. In 2008, Bryan began an undercover assignment with the Southwest Enforcement Team (SWET) where he remained until 2010. Upon completion of that assignment, D/Sgt Fuller briefly returned to the Hastings Post and in January 2011 began an assignment with the Fifth District Cold Case Team.
Bryan was reassigned to the Wayland Post in 2014, and in February 2015 began an assignment as a trooper investigator. In September 2016, Fuller was selected to fill the role of acting detective sergeant and promoted to D/Sgt in 2016 which is a position still held today. In his current role, he oversees and provides investigative guidance to the troopers at the post. He is also a member of the district wide investigative response team responsible for the investigation of officer involved shootings.
During Bryan’s career, he has had the experience of taking the lead role in many complex criminal investigations which include homicide, criminal sexual assault, narcotics trafficking, money laundering, and public corruption. Many of these cases have resulted in successful prosecution in both the state and federal court systems. Bryan has been involved in many in-depth investigations including the cold case homicide investigation of a child in St. Joseph County, providing investigative assistance in the Aundria Bowman cold case, as well as multiple officer-involved shootings.
Over the course of his career Bryan has been fortunate to receive specialized and unique training related to investigative work. For example, he is a post evidence technician, advanced traffic crash investigator and background investigator. He also received specialized training by attending the basic detective school, homicide investigations school, basic and advanced interviewing and interrogation (REID), scientific content analysis (SCAN), surveillance school, tactical raid entry school, digital evidence preservation, counter surveillance detection, basic and advanced narcotics school and indoor marijuana grow operations. He is a Clandestine Lab Site Safety Officer and have been qualified as an expert witness regarding methamphetamine investigations.
In addition to interdepartmental relationships, Bryan has been successful in building and maintaining positive relationships outside of the department. He works cooperatively with city, county, state and federal law enforcement agencies at both the patrol and command levels. In his career, he has made many contacts and built relationships with colleagues in the detective bureaus of agencies spanning the entire State of Michigan and across the country. These relationships have been invaluable in his efforts in solving criminal investigations. Specifically, the 2019 SEHIA conference in Norfolk Virginia was a catalyst that brought justice to a 30-year-old missing person case.
