Officer Bryan DeHart serves with Chesterfield Police. Chris DeHart is the undersheriff of Powhatan County. His son Kyle is a trooper with the Virginia State Police.

Bryan DeHart, with CPD, has been described as a compassionate professional who treats citizens with respect.

Undersheriff Chris DeHart in Powhatan is described as being patient and caring, a person who watches out for the people of the county.
