Chief Word is one of our favorite speakers and he did not disappoint us yesterday as he addressed several issues facing the Vacaville Police Department, our community and the schools. The Chief credited reduced staff and the distressed economy as contributors to the uprise of crime in Vacaville. He also spoke about efforts to secure safe environments on our school campuses. In light of the recent school shootings in Conneticut, the Chief and members of the Vacaville School District are meeting to discuss possible solutions. He also discussed the many on going efforts of the force to work with troubled youth and homeless youth in our community.
VP and program chair, Sandy Esparza, presented Chief Word with a Live Your Dream pin and encouraged him to visit the Live Your Dream website.
