NEW SARGE in CHARGE! Sheriff’s Office Assigns Longtime Cop to Command of SoHum Substation
From the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office:
Beginning this week, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Garberville Substation has a new sergeant in charge.
Sergeant Sam Williams has been assigned to the Garberville supervisor post. Williams replaces Sergeant Jesse Taylor, who has accepted a new position at the Sheriff’s Office Main Station.
Williams has been a member of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office for 17 years. Seven of those years, Williams lived in Redway and worked out of the Garberville Substation. Williams has worked in various assignments with the Sheriff’s Office including Main Station Patrol, Court Services, Special Services and Investigations. Williams was promoted to Sheriff’s Sergeant in 2014 and since that time has worked as a Patrol Sergeant out of the Main Station in Eureka.
“I’ve always had a special affection for Southern Humboldt,” Sergeant Williams said. “When the opportunity came to be able to return to the area, I eagerly accepted the assignment.”
Williams has a familiarity with some of the unique challenges the community faces and looks forward to working with the citizens of Southern Humboldt to help find acceptable solutions.
Please join us in welcoming Sergeant Williams to his new position.
