[ARCHIVED] OPD Recruiter and Background Investigator – Corporal Marshall Williams

Marshall Williams

One of the many friendly faces at the Odessa Police Department is Corporal Marshall Williams! He is so personable and never meets a stranger. 


Corporal Williams has been with the Odessa Police Department for more than 11 years.  He reaches out to local high schools and helps 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," said Corporal Williams


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 on-line.  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! He also teaches classes for our current officers.


We are thankful to have Corporal Williams working hard to bring in future generations of officers (the best and the brightest) to protect our home, our community, the place we love… the City of ODESSA!
