Internal Security Badge

Manzanar, CA

The Army staffed the guard towers and oversaw external security. An internal police force maintained order within the camp. Internee police, under the direction of Caucasian officers, dealt with crimes ranging from petty theft to a murder-suicide. A judicial commission composed of internees and administration staff heard the cases. This badge was worn by Manzanar's Assistant Chief of Internal Security Loren Williams.
