Mobile Chief of Police Set to Retire Among Others

MOBILE, Ala. -

One day after businessman Sandy Stimpson wins the election for Mobile Mayor, News 5 has learned the Mobile Police Chief, Micheal T. Williams plans to retire.

Chief Williams told News 5's Chad Petri he will retire when new administration takes over in November.

Williams was named police chief in 2010. He's worked for the Mobile Police Department for more than two decades.

News 5's Allen Carter caught up with newly elected mayor Sandy Stimpson to talk about Chief Williams' announcement.

“The situation with the police chief obviously, I would have gone in and assessed that situation, but now with him resigned I don't have to spend the time doing that. You have to do an assessment but you don't have to assess who is currently in charge. But we will be having to do a lot of that in different areas," said Stimpson.

Chief of Staff Al Stokes also says he will retire, as well as Finance Director Barbara Malkove.

He has not given any reasons why he is retiring, but News 5 will continue to dig into the story and have updates on WKRG News 5.
