KHSD Launches New High School District Police
The Kern High School District Police Department (KHSDPD) has launched the very first high school Police Activities League (PAL). The Golden Valley High School (GVHS) PAL chapter is up and running with plans to expand the program to other schools in the district in the future.
Officer John Money is the driving force behind the organization at GVHS and shares the many benefits of having a group like this on campus.
Administrators and students at GVHS are thrilled to be a part of the initiative and the first KHSD school site with a PAL chapter, calling it a great fit for the goals set for students on the campus.
The GVHS chapter of the KHSDPD PAL is already very busy. The group volunteered for a highway and Camp Hamilton clean up, attended the Leaders in Life event, and volunteered at the commemoration of “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans.” GVHS PAL students are also taking part in upcoming events such as the Safety Spectacular, Veterans Day Parade, and Red Ribbon week activities.
The KHSDPD PAL organization is affiliated with the California Police Activities League and the National Police Activities League. The organization appreciates the support of local partners including the Kern County Sheriff’s Office and Veterans of Foreign Wars.
