Fairfield Bay Constable Col. Ingram Philips served as sergeant-at-arms at last week’s Republican Party of Arkansas’ State Convention in Hot Springs.

Philips has served as constable for the Fairfield Bay/Indian Rock Township since 2008.

"Ingram is a veteran, devoted public servant and lifelong Republican," said state Republican Party Chairman Doyle Webb.

Philips is a U.S. Army veteran, Arkansas-certified law enforcement officer, Certified Crime Prevention Specialist and trained Court Security Officer.

As constable, he recently established a community volunteer program called City Watch, and produced an emergency information booklet for Fairfield Bay residents.

Philips’ 30 years of military service included armor and chaplain duty. Following combat in Iraq, he was awarded the Bronze Star. He also received the Army’s Legion of Merit.

Philips currently serves on the Republican Party’s Second Congressional District Committee staff as political director and district sergeant-at-arms.
