CALPAL Board of Directors

The California PAL Board of Directors is comprised of both active duty and retired law enforcement officers along with civilians that typically work with youth services within their communities.  All of the board members are involved both with California PAL but also with their local PAL chapters.  This dedicated group of men and women help to steer California PAL in the right direction so that we can better serve our membership and bring forth valuable programs that benefit PAL youth from all around the state.

The California PAL Staff are dedicated employees of California PAL that oversee day to day operations of the organization along with the planning and logistics of all California PAL Programs and Events.  California PAL staff members also help to assist the local PAL chapters with their various operations and ensure that each chapter is running smoothly so that the PAL officers can focus on interaction with the PAL youth.
