For First Responders Appreciation Week, we would like to honor KU graduate, Officer James Williams, for his dedicated service in protecting his community and the lasting impression he made on his instructors and administrators here at KU.




My name is Officer James Williams. I was born in Ocala, Florida and raised in the Palm Beach County area my entire life.  I’m a law enforcement professional with 8 years of progressively responsible experience in directing and leading law enforcement goals and objectives. I started my career with the Boynton Beach Police Department, but I am currently employed at the Palm Beach County School Board Police Department.  My aim in life as a law enforcement officer is to provide protection for citizens in a professional and courteous manner.  I have a strong desire to help those in need as well as to justly and equally enforce the state laws to ensure the safety of the general public.

My experience at Keiser University will live with me forever.  I truly enjoyed the professors and my fellow classmates that I met during my time attending KU.  The knowledge I gained helped enhance my critical thinking skills and truly broadened my thought process. Obtaining my degree in Criminal Justice definitely jolted my confidence as an officer to the highest level.  I am forever grateful for the experience of attending Keiser University.

My life now after graduating has changed dramatically since I don’t have a test to study for or a research paper to write. However, I have continued training in my career field where I am continuing to grow as a law enforcement professional.  I would like to thank Keiser University for this honor of being recognized as a proud Keiser graduate and a first responder.
