Mobile's police chief is retiring. Chief Micheal T. Williams announced Wednesday he will step down from the post within 60 days. Williams is leaving before mayor-elect Sandy Stimpson takes office. Stimpson defeated two-term incumbent Sam Jones on Tuesday. Williams was named police chief in 2010. He's worked for the Mobile Police Department for more than two decades.
Mobile has a new mayor, but Birmingham voters re-elected the incumbent in municipal elections.
