  1. Chief Belcher’s accomplishments go beyond what is listed for him. I was an eighteen year old Police Cadet when I ran into trouble and Chief Belcher helped me to become now a Sergeant with the Stockton Unified School District Police Department. He gave a teenager from South Stockton who was in gangs and drugs a chance to become a Police Officer. I have been in law enforcement for 24 years now and a Sergeant he gave me a chance when I was an unproductive person to what I am today. I would love to share my story with anyone who will be willing to listen, it is quite long so I can’t type it or I would be writing a book but hopefully I can thank him again at this years conference.
