Killeen Municipal Court Judge William Gibson announced a change in court leadership Wednesday, appointing Bonnea Tindle as the court’s new city marshal.

Tindle will replace Dexter King, who has retired from his position.

Prior to her promotion, Tindle served the city of Killeen as deputy city marshal for two years.

“Marshal Tindle knows our system and the statutes she is charged with enforcing,” Gibson said. “She will definitely be an asset to the city in this new position.”

Tindle served in the United States Armed Forces and has 25 years of law enforcement experience, Killeen director of public relations Hilary Shine said.

As city marshal, Tindle’s main duty will be to supervise the marshal’s office, which is responsible for serving all city warrants and writs.

Her position is one of the most highly regarded in the city’s municipal court.

“It’s the highest marshal position so it is certainly a high position in the court,” Shine said.
