Williams was born and raised in New Orleans, La. He served as a Police Officer for the City of New Orleans for five years. Officer Williams was a member of a proactive taskforce, narcotics unit working side by side with the FBI, and gang taskforce.
“I’ve put away some violent offenders in my short career,” Williams said.
