Most Benicia students who get into trouble aren’t bad children, School Resource Officer Will Patterson told Thursday’s class of the Benicia Police Department’s Citizens Academy.
They have just made bad choices, he said.
Patterson’s first duty is as a police officer, one who primarily is on Benicia High School’s campus, dressed in full police gear, with weapons, protective vest and badge. “I hope they respect the position,” he said.
