Corporal Marshall Williams has been with the Odessa Police Department for more than 12 years. He is currently assigned to the Training Division as a Recruiter & Background Investigator. Part of his job involves reaches out to local high schools and helping students interested in a law enforcement career.
“I want anyone I speak with to have a better understanding of what our department has to offer and what we focus on, to let them know it is a great department to work for and the training and experience they can receive here is top-notch.”
He also goes the extra mile for those interested in applying.
“I believe having an in-person interaction is far more valuable than simply speaking with someone on the phone and telling them to just apply online. I want people to see that we take great pride in making sure we have the best-trained officers for our community."
Corporal Williams wears numerous hats at OPD. Along with Recruiting, he also serves as a Background Investigator, Defensive Tactics Instructor, and Basis Instructor for our Police Academy!
We are thankful to have Corporal Williams working hard to bring in our future generation of officers (the best and the brightest) to protect our home, our community, and the place we love… the City of ODESSA!
