The new Galt Police Activities League can begin soliciting donations for community youth sports teams and other outreach programs now that its nonprofit papers have been approved by the California Secretary of State.

Vice Mayor Mike Singleton, who has spearheaded efforts to create a PAL, made the announcement during Tuesday’s regular City Council meeting. He said the official state approval was received late last month.

Police activities leagues, founded nationally more than 70 years ago, are affiliated with local police departments. Police officers and other personnel serve as mentors and coaches with the goal of keeping students engaged and out of trouble through sports and other outreach efforts.

Creating one in Galt is part of the city’s ongoing strategic plan.

Singleton has been working with Tracie Cross of the Galt Joint Union High School District, Police Officer T.J. Guidotti, self-defense instructor Stan Toscano and Estrellita Continuation High School Principal Tony Lara in making the program a reality.

Singleton said Tuesday he plans to work with other youth outreach programs to get the word out about the new PAL.
