Williams Junior Police Academy Wraps-up with Jail Tour

[slideshow_deploy id=’61434′]

For six weeks, nine students from Arbuckle, Williams, and Colusa participated in the Williams Police Department’s Junior Police Academy.

Under the direction and watchful eye of Williams Police Officer, Ivan Maldonado.

“It was a great turnout for the first year,” said Maldonado, “The kids were very excited and eager to learn.”

Three days a week, the students would learned the various aspects of police duties and law enforcement.

Some topics included: traffic collisions, interview and interrogations, building searches, the history of law, crime and punishment, and covering cyberbulling and sexing.

“We covered a lot of material in the six week class,” said Maldonado, “however the kids enjoyed the hands on activities the most.”

Demonstrations were also given by the Colusa County Drug Task Force, and the Williams Police Department K9 Unit.

“The kids really enjoyed the building searches,” said Maldonado.

The program is designed to give young students a greater positive sense on law enforcement, while developing good character and exploring the career possibilities in law enforcement.

“Many of the kids thought all we did was make arrests,” said Maldonado, “and two of the students graduated high school this year and are seeking a career in law enforcement.”

At the end of the six week course, the Junior Police Academy students were given a tour of the Colusa County Jail.

At the jail, students toured the administration, were given a presentation with the county dispatch, and experienced the luxuries of the jail including the drunk tank, solitary confinement, clothing, hygiene, and jail food.

“The Colusa County Sheriff’s Office has been very supportive of the program,” said Maldonado, “our success couldn’t have been as great without them.”

The Williams Police Department anticipates hosting another Junior Police Academy next summer. For more information, contact the Williams Police Department at (530) 473-2661.
