Former Police Lt. to speak on Experiences in South Sudan
West Windsor, N.J. – Retired Woodbridge Township Police Lt. Herbert Williams, a specialist in the training of police officers and intelligence professionals, will speak about his international experience in Africa in his lecture, “South Sudan: Destruction and Rebirth,” on Thursday, Oct. 27 at noon at Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC) Holocaust/Genocide Center, located on the second floor of the Library Building on the West Windsor Campus.
For ten months in 2009 Williams lived in war-torn South Sudan, training members of the South Sudanese Police Service. While there, Williams worked with officials to develop an entirely new Basic Police Academy curriculum. Plagued by ethnic tensions and rebellions, millions have died in the Republic of South Sudan.
Williams earned a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Rutgers University and continues to work as a police trainer, researcher and writer. He has served in leadership positions with the Woodbridge Township Police Department, including as Lt. Staff Officer. He was executive officer in the Communications and Data Processing Division, manager of the Crime & Intelligence Analysis Unit, and a patrolman. He has also served as an international police advisor for the U.S. Department of State at PAE, a subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Corporation. He has been published in books and magazines on such topics as police management, human trafficking, and intelligence analysis.
The lecture is sponsored by MCCC’s Holocaust Genocide Resource Center, located on MCCC’s West Windsor Campus. The center is designed to provide support to educators, local organizations and the community at large in Mercer County in order to better teach and understand the concepts and lessons of the Holocaust and other genocides.
The Center is a joint project of Mercer County Community College and the Mercer County Heritage Commission under the auspices of the County Executive's Office.
