Adriel Gonzalez is Chief for a Day in Yakima

Yakima Police Department

Just call him “Chief,” because that’s exactly what Adriel Gonzalez will be during Yakima’s part of the annual Chief for a Day celebration today.

Gonzalez, an 11-year-old Wilson Middle School student, has autism and was selected through the Parent to Parent program at Children’s Village.

According to a Yakima Police Department news release, “Chief For a Day is about celebrating the lives of children who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening or chronic illness.”

Other cities around the valley, such as Selah and Wapato, will have their own chiefs.

The kids will all head to Kent and the ShoWare Center, where they will have a full day of fun and information. They will be escorted in police cars through several cities. Then they will be sworn in as chiefs and sheriffs, have lunch with other attendees and academy recruits, and finally participate in outside presentations provided by law enforcement agencies.

There will also be a presentations by K-9 units, bike patrols, SWAT, rifle units and more.
