Speaker: James A. Dimmit
In the early years of the 2000s, Jim Dimmitt served as a staff officer with the Chico Police Department. He was struck by the absence of any real summary history for the Department, and began to research through records, examine department artifacts, and talk to people in the know. His book, The Chico Police Department - The First One Hundred Years emerged. Jim is now working in the Roseville area, but will return to Chico to tell us this story, using projected images to highlight and illustrate his presentation. His program will be an appropriate ending to Chico's "CHICO 150" commemoration of 150 years of "city-hood", as the formation of a local police department was a prime reason for the 1872 city incorporation under the State of California. The Chico History Museum will have copies of his book for sale.
