    Police Chief Steps Down

San Marcos chief of police Howard Williams is retiring after 11 years on the job.

San Marcos Police Chief Howard Williams is retiring on August 1 after holding the position of Police Chief for eleven years. Prior to coming to San Marcos, he worked in the Austin Police Department for twenty-six years. Williams describes how it all happened.

“On Monday morning I walked into the City Manager and the assistant City Managers office Monday and told them his plan and gave them his letter just before the City Council meeting Tuesday The Mayor made it official at the meeting Tuesday.”
– Howard Williams

In December of 2013 Williams was awarded the Doctor Philosophy degree in Criminal Justice from Texas State University. Williams says what he is most proud of.

“Starting our Victim Services program here to help people here deal with the aftermath of some of the trauma that they have to deal with beyond that we started a joint program with the sheriffs office to have officers specially trained in dealing with mental health patients.”
– Howard Williams

Does Williams have any plans for retirement?

“I really don’t, I turn fifty eight at the end of the month so I’m on the young side i will  find something to do to keep me entertained but right now there are no plans I’m not actively looking for anything I’m just enjoying retirement for a little bit and making it up to wife for all the putting up with me she’s had to for 30 years. She’s been a good support and all but its time to start making it up to her.”
– Howard Williams

Williams says he loves it here in San Marcos and does not plan to move.
