Herriman Police Department visited Herriman’s Walmart Neighborhood Market store manager Brock Rose and his team Thursday, January 23rd, to express thanks to them and Walmart Giving for a generous donation. The grant enabled HPD to launch the Herriman City Peer Court, a proven alternative justice program designed to place youth on a positive path of accountability, skill development, and community connections rather than punitive sentencing after committing a minor offense.
