Police Activities League
Citrus Heights Police Activities League is a nonprofit organization focused on creating positive relationships between the youth in our community and the officers in our police department. PAL hosts several events for children throughout the year including field trips to local attractions, educational experiences, and fun activities. In the summer, we host a day-camp which allows youth to make special memories with our first responders while having incredible fun such as river-rafting, horse-back riding, navigating a ropes course, learning a sport, or splashing in the pool.
Communities have learned that having a local PAL helps kids make better choices to stay out of trouble and reduces juvenile crime while fostering better relations with local law enforcement. As a non-profit organization, PAL greatly depends on our supporters to help us achieve our mission. Our successful programs have proven time and time again that dedicated community policing by our Citrus Heights Police Department in conjunction with their local PAL program is an effective solution that provides a huge positive influence in our communities and makes a difference in the lives of our youth.
Police Explorer Program
The Explorer program is for young men and women between the ages of 14 and 20 years old who have an interest in law enforcement. They participate in formal training with CHPD officers twice a month. Explorers also volunteer at police and community events such as DUI checkpoints and CHPAL events. To qualify students must maintain a "C" average or greater in all school work from High School and College. They cannot have any arrests or convictions and will go through a background check.
