PACO VILLA CCPOA BLOG - November 18, 2005 - This site is dedicated to Correctional Peace Officers and the California Correctional Peace Officers Association (CCPOA) in particular.  Paco Villa's CCPOA blog has been online since May 15, 2004 and has been a controversial sensation ever since.  Please check it out by selecting the above link, or the navigation button on the left side console.  As stated by one viewer, "This site was created by a correctional officer and is used by those employed as such, including the CCOPA's President (aka:CCOPA-Activist Forever) Mike Jeminez. You have to gain an access code before you can view the site, but the outflow of "true info" regarding these "pillars of society" employees is insightful.  These people have no respect for their administrators, supervisors, peers, least of all inmates! It's no wonder that the California Penal System's in such a state of disarray and despair."
