First, thank you for the opportunity to serve the Williston community as the Police Chief. It is truly my honor to serve this community. I serve alongside many outstanding men and women that make up the Williston Police Department. We take tremendous pride in our partnership with this community. It is through this partnership that the high quality of life and safety can be preserved for those that live and work in Williston, and for those that visit our excellent community.

Our men and women are highly educated, well-trained, and extremely devoted to the highest standards of integrity, morals, and ethics. Each member of the Williston Police Department is devoted to work with our community to solve crime and keep our neighborhoods safe. We pride ourselves on having tremendous community support, which assists us in hiring and retaining the best police officers we possibly can.

As a department, we have initiated many different programs to provide education and promote community relations. Some of these programs include Citizens Police Academy, DARE, Neighborhood Watch, Bike Rodeos, Safe Bank Instructions, and many others. Thank you for visiting the Williston Police Department website. If you have any questions, comments, or feedback, please contact us. We would be happy to hear from you.
