Mike Everding, Fairbank Part-Time Police Chief

Mike joined the Fairbank Police Department on June 8, 2020.

"I started my law enforcement career in 2004 as a reserve Deputy Sheriff with the Linn County Sheriff’s Office, while working as a supervisor in the printing industry. In 2005 I accepted a full-time position as a Deputy Sheriff for the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office. While at the Sheriff’s Office I specialized in accident reconstruction with three D diagraming and Total Station scale drawings; I was a certified CDR Technician II (crash data retrieval), I was a certified instructor for the Taser M26, X26, and the X2, I was certified by the Division of Criminal Investigations as a Marijuana Identification Expert and an expert in the abandon vehicle process. I also served as an instructor for the ATV Safety Institute for over ten years.

I left the Sheriff’s office in the fall of 2017 and spent the next three summers as a Water Patrol Officer for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, where I enforced fishing and boating regulations on the Mississippi and on Iowa’s interior lakes and streams.

In July of 2020 I started with the Fairbank Police Department and assumed the responsibilities as Chief shortly thereafter."
