Guest column: Williams Law Day comes to Williams court
Rob Krombeen
Williams Justice Court Magistrate

President Dwight Eisenhower established May 1 as Law Day in 1958 as "a day of national dedication to the principle of government under law." Across the country, criminal justice agencies and courts will be renewing their understanding of, and appreciation for, the fundamental principle of the rule of law. This year's theme for Law Day is, "No Courts, No justice, No Freedom," and is indicative of the crucial role our judicial system plays in a free society. The Williams Justice and Municipal Courts will celebrate Law Day on May 13 by opening the court to students from the Williams High School and Middle School to partake in courtroom activities which will impress upon them the importance of law and order in our communities. Real attorneys, bailiffs, and other criminal justice professionals and service providers will be present to provide instruction and real experience with inter-active courtroom proceedings. We want to encourage the public to celebrate with us on this day to remember all of the past sacrifices and struggles involved in creating the fair and just legal system we all appreciate. The event will be open to the public so please plan to stop by the court on May 13 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. We want to thank the Williams Unified School District and all of the criminal justice and service providing professionals who are participating to make this event a success!

The Williams Justice Court welcomes Coconino County Volunteer Don Saylor to our court. Mr. Saylor has extensive work history and experience in counseling veterans and those suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), substance abuse, and other emotional health matters. Mr. Saylor will be coordinating our community restitution program at the court, which has been providing services to our community from those persons ordered by the court to perform community restitution. This is usually accomplished by those persons contributing to community beautification. The court works closely with Williams Clean and Beautiful and city staff to identify and prioritize those projects. We appreciate the positive feedback we've received from business owners and public regarding this program. If you have any suggestions for future projects please call the court at (928) 635-2691.
