Podcast: One-time top cop “blessed” by new career

By Jay Socol, Public Communications Director

After a 25-year career that began with patrolling the Texas A&M campus and then the streets of College Station, Jeff Capps eventually became chief of the College Station Police Department. In 2014, he traded his badge and uniform for a decidedly different role in the city organization: assistant city manager.
