Bill Livingston



My name is Bill Livingston and I am the Chief of Police in Weimar, Texas. Weimar is located about half way between Houston and San Antonio on Interstate 10. I have been Chief here for over 20 years. Prior to coming to Weimar, I was a deputy Sheriff with Fayette County, our adjoining neighbor to the north.

I graduated from Texas A & M University in 1971 and from LEMIT's LCC (back when it was GMI) in 1999. I currently serve on the Board of Directors for the LCC Alumni Association as a Past-President. I received my Masters degree in Criminal Justice from Sam Houston State University in August, 2011. I was in the first online class to complete the Master's program.

I have obtained various law enforcement licenses and certificates, including a Master Peace Officers license, a Law Enforcement Instructors license, a Firearms Instructors license and have over 7000 TCLEOSE training hours.

The Weimar Police Department is a small department (Weimar is a small rural town), consisting of ten (10) officers and my administrative assistant. We are very fortunate to have a City Council and citizens that support law enforcement in our community and although we are not a wealthy City, we are appropriately funded and our salaries are in line with other departments in the area.

A little over eight years ago, the police department moved into our present location, a building on the Interstate, separate from City Hall and we have been very pleased. It afforded us much more room and allowed all of our officers and functions to be in one location. We have also recently been awarded the "Recognized Status" by the Texas Police Chiefs Association Foundation for compliance with the Texas Law Enforcement Agency Best Practices Recognition Program.
