Williams welcomes newest police officer, department fully staffed

Williams City Clerk, Mariana Pineda swears in Williams’ newest police officer Adam Reusser.

The Williams Police Department is fully staffed for the first time in nearly a year after officially welcoming their newest officer into the fold last week.

“This will be the last one we’re going to fill for a while, because we have a budget where we’re going to hold one position open,” Council member John Troughton said. “If things go well with revenues and stuff, that position will be filled eventually, but it won’t be immediately.”

Adam Reusser was sworn in as an officer during a small ceremony at City Hall last Thursday, attended by city officials and a handful of Reusser’s family members.

Williams’ newest officer was born and raised in Marysville. He attended high school there and graduated in 2002. After working a few jobs in the private sector, Reusser began the police academy at Butte College in 2004, and graduated in 2005.

He began his law enforcement career at the Gridley-Biggs Police Department, where he was a field training officer, task force officer, and school resource officer. While working at the department, he obtained his bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice from Ashford University in 2012.

Reusser eventually moved on to the Marysville Police Department, where he had been a Police Cadet from 1997 to 1999. His grandfather also worked for the department from 1951 to 1983.

“We’re glad and proud to have him here at the Williams Police Department,” said Chief Ed Anderson.
Reusser brings with him a total of nine years of law enforcement experience. Troughton, who has been vocal about hiring experienced officers to fill the department’s ranks, was thrilled with the addition.

“I’m tickled to death with this,” Troughton said. “You have someone with experience coming to Williams – it’s great. This is kind of unexpected, considering what we went through the last year or so.

When we get seasoned officers to come to Williams, that’s pretty good for us because the break-in time is minimal. He’s got a good background he’s got a bachelor’s degree – those don’t come along very often for Williams.”

Troughton added he was “very happy” with the way things had been going at the department for the past two to three months.■
