Williams invites residents to meet their safety officers
By Pat Dowling|
North Myrtle Beach Public Safety Officer Keith Williams invites Windy Hill residents to join him on Saturday, May 14, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Yow Park at 508 Windy Hill Road to meet him and other police officers and supervisors who patrol the Windy Hill neighborhood daily. (Some of the public safety employees will be joined by their families.) The event will include a bouncy house and prizes for kids, patrol cars and an opportunity for residents to ask questions and get to know some of the Public Safety Officers who care about and keep your community safe.
Officer Williams joined the Public Safety Department in August 2015. Prior to that, he served in the United States Marine Corps as a Military Policeman and retired with the rank of Sergeant Major in 2012 after 25 years of service.
One of the greatest honors in his life was to serve as a Marine, during which time he completed several combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.
After retiring from the Marine Corps, he served as a law enforcement officer in San Diego, Calif., for two years before deciding to head east to be closer to family.
Officer Williams was raised in Burlington, N.C., and married his high school sweetheart, Dawn. They have been married for 25 years and have three children, ages 10, 16 and 20.
In describing his objectives for his Windy Hill community focus, Officer Williams said, “I want residents to know that I am here to serve and protect all of them. I want to meet everyone and get to know their needs and concerns. If they see me driving around, they can feel free to stop me to ask any questions, express concerns or just say hello.”
Officer Williams added that if he doesn’t know the answer to a question offhand, he will research it, find the answer and get back to you.
