Police program rescheduled for April 30


The annual “Year in Review” program by the San Marcos Police Department has been rescheduled for Thursday, April 30 at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 630 E. Hopkins. The program was originally set for April 8.

San Marcos police chief Howard E. Williams invites the public to attend the program on local crime trends and other police-related issues. The session is an annual briefing by the Police Department to inform the public about department accomplishments, goals, crime statistics, and police activity.

The public will hear Williams as well as from command staff members.

“We believe that the police department should be accountable, publicly, to the community we serve. We will brief citizens on our programs and give them an opportunity to ask us questions about the police services we deliver,” Williams said.

The briefing will cover crime trends, patrol activity, traffic enforcement, criminal investigations, sex offenders, parking enforcement, recruitment and hiring, training, use of less-lethal weapons, crime prevention, Citizens Police Academy, school resource officers, victims services, bicycle and foot patrols, loud party enforcement, and narcotics. Williams will also discuss the annual racial profiling report and use of force statistics.

The presentation will be broadcast live on the City’s cable television channels, Time Warner, Channel 10 and Grande Communications, Channel 16.
