The Grand Junction Police Department is pleased to announce that longtime volunteer Bill Price has been selected as the Colorado Association of Chiefs of Police Citizen Volunteer of the Year. Bill was presented this honor during the CACP conference in Denver on Tuesday, July 21. The conference was attended by over 90 Chiefs of Police from across the state.
Mr. Price has been serving the Grand Junction Police Department for 21 years. Bill has volunteered in many capacities in the Police Department, including Volunteer Patrol, traffic control, and safety fairs. His focus has been with our Evidence section since 1994, where he spends two days every week. Bill has donated almost 10,000 hours of his time to the Grand Junction Police Department over the years, which is the equivalent of nearly five years of full time service. In addition to his time with the Police Department, Bill also serves as a bicycle trail host, patrolling the River Front trails.
Chief Camper offers, “Bill has been vital to the success of our organization. He has been a critical member of our Property/Evidence section for many years, and has helped us maintain the very high standards of that unit. I can’t imagine anyone more deserving of this award, and we’re proud to have him with the Grand Junction Police Department.”
Please join us in thanking Bill for his service to our agency, and our community.
