Chief for a Day

Walla Walla Public Schools students recently participated in the The Chief for a Day program with local first responders. This program is an opportunity to celebrate the lives of children living in our community who have a disability and/or chronic illness, by letting them serve as honorary Chiefs for our local public safety and correctional justice agencies. The nominations came from family, teachers, neighbors, and friends.

Participating Agencies:
College Place Police Department, College Place Fire Department, Walla Walla Police Department, Walla Walla City Fire Department, Washington State Penitentiary, District 4 Fire Department, Walla Walla County Sheriff’s Office, Washington State Patrol, and Washington State Penitentiary

Walla Walla Area Crime Watch (WWACW), a non-profit organization that supports crime prevention in the Walla Walla Valley, is hosting the Chief for a Day Swearing during National Night Out at Pioneer Park, August 2.
