Questions still linger about Reed’s departure



    A Meridian native, former Meridian Police Department Chief James Reed  graduated from the University of Mississippi in 1976 with a degree in public administration and law enforcement and was one of the first two African-American players on the Ole Miss football team.

    Reed began his law enforcement career in August 1976 with the Mississippi Department of Justice after graduating from Ole Miss with a degree in Public Administration and Law Enforcement.

    Then Reed worked for the state of Mississippi as a probation/parole officer, and later entered the NCIS in September 1985 as a criminal investigator. While with NCIS, Reed served both in the United States and overseas as a supervisor over field agents; took part in assignments dealing with counter terrorism intelligence operations; and provided protective services to national and international dignitaries.
