Altus PD taps new deputy chief

ALTUS, Okla._ The Altus Police Department is tapping detective Bill Perkins as its next deputy chief of police.

Perkins joined the Altus police force in 2006 and has served in the Detective Division since 2009. He has more than 15 years of law enforcement experience, starting his career as a patrol officer in Dallas.

Police Chief Tim Murphy said in a release this afternoon, "He's dedicated, hardworking, fair and sympathetic to the needs of our community ... I’m certain Deputy Chief Bill Perkins will do a great job for the City of Altus and our police department."

Perkins and his family live in Altus. He grew up in Duncan and graduated from Oklahoma State University. He will be replacing current Deputy Chief Mike Bell who will begin his role as chief of police in Coweta, Okla. next week.
