Andalusia Police Chief Paul Hudson is celebrating his 25th year with the City Of Andalusia.

Hudson joined the city in 1994, when then-chief Jerry Williamson hired him.

In 1997, he was promoted to patrol sergeant and then K9 sergeant the following year.

Williamson promoted Hudson to lieutenant in 1999.

In 2003, he became a part of the 22nd Judicial Circuit Drug Task Force.

Hudson spent nine years on the DTF before he was transferred back to patrol before Mayor Earl Johnson promoted him to chief in 2013.

Hudson earned his bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Troy University in 2011, and is a graduate of FBI NA Class 223.
