Police chief to deliver department update today


San Marcos Police Chief Howard Williams invites the public to attend a “Year in Review” briefing on local crime trends and other police-related issues at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 30, 2010 at City Hall, 630 E. Hopkins.

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

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 from Williams as well as from Police Department 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.
