Williams took the position when Carl “Buddy” Peaster retired as MTSU’s police chief in May 2021 after 14 years of service.

An employee of D. Stafford and Associates, a Delaware-based consulting firm that specializes in campus safety and security, Williams will remain in the MTSU job until a search for a permanent chief is complete. He is not a candidate for the permanent position.

In addition to a 20-year career with the Los Angeles Police Department, Williams’ resume includes stints as chief at Keene State College in Keene, New Hampshire, the University of Michigan-Dearborn, Arizona State University and the University of Oregon.

MTSU Police Department's new logo“The best way to maintain a safe campus environment, from my experience, is to have a very good working relationship with the students, faculty and staff,” Williams said.

“We also need to be very visible on campus. I’m talking about foot patrols, bicycle patrols, car patrols.”
