Rockel joined the Williamson Department in 1993, after relocating back to Mingo County from Fort Myers, Florida, where he was employed as an officer with the Lee County Sheriff's Department for 7 years. Prior to his employment there, Rockel spent close to 9 years with the City of Logan's Police Department, which provides him with a high level of knowledge and understanding of what serving the public truly means.

"I guess you could describe me as an old school cop," remarked Chief Rockel during an interview with the Williamson Daily News on Friday, which was his last official day with the city.
"I'm a dying breed," stated Rockel.
...
Rockel has been employed on a part-time basis with the county through the Prosecuting Attorney Office for several months, holding the title of Drug Task Force Commander. Rockel worked hand in hand and developed a close working relationship as well as a friendship with the late-Sheriff, Eugene Crum.
...
"This has been a very emotional year for me," said Rockel.
...
While speaking about his 20 years with the city, Rockel was asked how he feels the police department has improved throughout his time in office, and what he would like to see happen with them in the future.
"Although they are down one officer, they remain a larger force than what the city experienced through the past ten years or so. They are certainly better trained; they have up to date and state-of-the-art equipment that includes rifles, shotguns, tasers and computers. Each officer also has a patrol car. I am confident they will continue to move forward and prosper under the leadership of the new police chief, whoever that may be," stated Rockel.
...
I'm optimistic that we can start anew and get everyone on board with a plan to move forward," commented Rockel.
...
Rockel commented that there are many good men employed as deputies, and he plans to get everyone up to speed with any training they may require.
Rockel asked to thank Mayor McCormick and the Williamson Council for allowing him the opportunity to serve as their police chief, having been the first officer to work up through the ranks and be named as chief in over 35 years. He commented that he made the mayor a promise that he will continue to work with the city police, aiding them however he can and plans to fulfill that obligation.
