Deputy Natalie Hidalgo is the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff Station’s newly appointed school resource officer for Golden Valley High School, Sierra Vista Junior High School and Sequoia School.
Deputy Hidalgo has served as a patrol deputy at SCV Sheriff’s Station for three years, and with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for a total of six years.
She graduated from Valencia High School, College of the Canyons, and then continued on to Cal State LA where she graduated with a degree in Political Science. Hidalgo comes from a law enforcement family as her father is a retired LASD deputy and her sister currently serves as an LASD deputy at a jail facility.
Hidalgo commented that when she first went off to college, she wanted to become a lawyer but her father encouraged her to become a deputy.
“I decided to become a deputy, to at least give it a try,” she said. “And after I tried it, I found out I loved it.”
Deputy Hidalgo looks forward to working with the youth in Santa Clarita Valley and being a motivating force for the positive.
“I thank my dad for getting myself and my siblings where we are in life. And I want to try and motivate the students, to push them on to the right paths, and make good choices.”
Well, we are confident Hidalgo will be an asset to William S. Hart District and we wish her the best in her new assignment!
