VIDEO: Palm Springs PD Escorts Fallen Officer’s Daughter to School 

Recently, 8-year-old Vanessa Vega lost her father in the line of duty. Jose “Gil” Vega, a 35-year veteran of the Palm Springs Police Department, was shot and killed responding to a disturbance call. It’s something every law enforcement officer and their family lives with – the reality that when they leave for their shift, they may not return home.

So Monday, as Vanessa headed back to school for the first time since losing her father, members of the PSPD were at her home to show the young girl that she will always have the support from her father’s fellow officers.

“Look it, Vanessa,” one officer says as he points to the line of officers, “all of your uncles came by to take you to school this morning!”
