Police Interns Present to City Council

The City of Grass Valley is a little cleaner and  parking violators are more likely to pay attention to time limits as a result of the work of some college students. Sierra College and the Grass valley Police department are working together to provide intern opportunities for students in the Administration of Justice program. At Tuesday’s City Council meeting six of the Police Aides were present to inform the Council of their activities and share their experiences. Aide Mariah Smith was in charge of leading the presentation.

Chief John Foster added that not only do the Police Aides do parking enforcement and cleanup, they often get to shadow him and other officers. Foster says two Aides were included in a recent residence search that involved multiple arrests.
