Maryland Heights Police Chief Set to Enter Last Month on the Job
William Carson will begin serving as Maryland Heights Police Chief on Jan. 1.
The Maryland Heights Police Department will get a new leader in 2013.
Police Chief Tom O'Connor is set to retire in December, making way for William Carson, who now serves as the department's commander of Support Services and Office of Professional Standards, to take man the position beginning in January 2013.
