George Landon Phillips, former United States Attorney for the Southern District of Mississippi, received a high honor today.
Today, Mississippi Highway Patrol Troop K hosted a building dedication to ensure Phillips’ memory lives on for generations. Phillips also served as the Mississippi Commissioner of Public Safety, special counsel to U.S. Senator Thad Cochran, and the director of the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics.
His friends, former colleagues, family and patrolmen gathered to know how loved he was.
Bud Phillips, George’s brother, says he knows George would be so excited to know how loved he was. “I’m delighted to see it finally happen. We’ve been working on this and planning for it for almost two years. It’s a delight for me to have all of his friends and former comrades here and to see this building dedicated to his memory.”
After his passing in 2015, Phillips was honored by NAFUSA with an American flag flown over main justice and presented to his family at his memorial service.
