My name is Wes Herman and I am the Youth & Family Services Sergeant (aka the Ambassador of Fun!). My job is to oversee the School Resource Officers (SROs), the Juvenile Detective and all of the youth related programs for the Police Department. I am the current Police Activities League (PAL) President, a non-profit organization designed to bring rewarding activities and experiences to the youth of Citrus Heights. Our unit operates the Police Explorer program, the Public Safety Pathway program and Parent Project, both in conjunction with San Juan Unified School District, and the Youth Leadership Council. Our goal is to develop you – the youth in Citrus Heights – into the future leaders of tomorrow!
I’ve been a police officer with CHPD since 2008 and in addition to patrol have worked as a Field Training Officer, a Detective and a Patrol Sergeant. I am also our Range Master for the Firearms Team and the Honor Guard Sergeant. I love my job and I find it so rewarding being able to connect with kids in our community. Our team has a lot of fun and we host a number of awesome events every year including our annual summer Xtreme Camp!
I love all outdoor activities and enjoy taking my kids fishing, skiing and bike riding. Come join CH PAL – we’d love to have you! I can guarantee you that when you do, you’ll have a lot of fun, meet some amazing people working here and go on some incredible adventures.
