Colonel Heston Silbert Announces Retirement


- For Immediate Release -


Tuesday, January 03, 2023

I am announcing my retirement from the Department of Public Safety effective Friday, January 6, 2023. It has been an honor of a lifetime to have served the men and women of the Department of Public Safety, and the citizens of this great state. As Director I observed firsthand the selflessness, dedication, and bravery of our Arizona State Troopers and professional staff.

I would like to thank Governor Ducey for his support and faith in me. I understand the process and wish nothing but the best for Governor Hobbs and her team.


Colonel Heston Silbert, Director
Arizona Department of Public Safety
