The Los Alamos Police Department held a retirement event for Sgt. DeWayne Williams Thursday in police headqarters. Williams, 48, has served the Los Alamos community for nearly two decades. He is a pistol expert who taught firearms training and defensive tactics training for the department.
“I decided that it’s time to leave the department and do something else,” Williams told the Los Alamos Daily Post during an interview in his office last week. “It will also give me the opportunity to spend more time with my family and that is something I’m really looking forward to.”
Williams joined the Los Alamos Police Department in July 1994 and the highlight of his career was working in investigations.
“I will most miss working as a detective,” Williams said of his 24 years in law enforcement.
Williams intends to spend more time with his family in his retirement and said he also looks forward to doing more hunting and trout fishing.
