Public invited to Feb. 7 retirement party for Police Chief
Come to United Heritage Center to help say good bye to Tim Ryle
Police Chief Tim Ryle
To celebrate his 31 years of leadership in the Round Rock Police Department, the City of Round Rock is hosting a come-and-go reception for Police Chief Tim Ryle from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7, at the Dell Diamond United Heritage Center, 3400 E. Palm Valley Blvd.
A formal program will begin at 6 p.m.
“I plan to do a little traveling with family and a bunch of relaxing for a few days and spend time with my three beautiful daughters, son-in law and grandkids,” Ryle said. “I need to show an old partner that I can out fish him. That should take about two weeks. Then I plan to stay involved in law enforcement in the state through teaching, consulting and maybe even another Chief executive job if the right one comes along. I am way too young to stop working all together so I will look for the next adventure.”
Chief Ryle began his law enforcement career with the Luling Police Department in 1982. He was hired at the City of Round Rock in April 1983. He rose through the ranks, serving as Patrol Sergeant, Lieutenant over Narcotics and SWAT, and Captain before being named Assistant Chief of Police in 2007. He was promoted to Police Chief in October 2011. A native Texan, he is also a third-generation police officer.
Chief Ryle has a Bachelor’s Degree in Organizational Leadership from Mountain State University. He is a graduate of the Command College at Sam Houston State University and holds a Master’s Peace Officer’s certification from the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement. In 2004, he received the City of Round Rock’s first Exemplary Leadership Citation. He is also a graduate of the FBI Executive Development Program.
