Longtime law enforcement officer Doug Mullins had his first official day on the job as the new warden of the Alcorn County Regional Correctional Facility Nov. 7. Mullins first began filling in as the interim warden at the Alcorn County Regional Correctional Facility in September 2011.
His history working with law enforcement reaches back over three decades. Mullins began his law enforcement career in February 1977 as a dispatcher for then-Sheriff Edwin Coleman at the Alcorn County Sheriff’s Department. He has worked with Corinth Police Department, Tishomingo County law enforcement and the Booneville Police Department.
Mullins has worked his way up from dispatcher, to deputy, investigator and chief deputy.
He worked for three years with the Mississippi Department of Corrections at a community work center and three years with the National Auto Theft Bureau (now the National Insurance Crime Bureau) investigating auto theft, fraud, arson and other related offenses.
His last stint away from Alcorn County was working with the Department of the Army at Fort Polk, La., from 2005 to 2008.
