P.A.L. Press Conference

Police Chief Cam Sanchez will hold a press conference tomorrow, April 26th, at 10:30 a.m., in front of the Santa Barbara Police Department. He will discuss important enhancements to the Police Activities League, also known as P.A.L. Chief Sanchez wants to counter some mistaken belief that P.A.L. is being severely curtailed or dismissed altogether. Chief Sanchez reports: “Despite on-going budgetary constraints, P.A.L. provides an essential boost to our community’s youth programs. For many kids, P.A.L. is what separates them from poor grades, gang membership, and a limited future.”

Chief Sanchez will accept questions from the media. The public is welcome to attend
