The Police Activities League prides itself on providing FREE programs, events, and activities for our youth within the city. Our primary focus is on social, cultural, recreational, and educational programs, events, and activities that will grow with your child. PAL strives to mentor and teach strong character skills such as teamwork, honesty, and integrity. Our educational activities expose our youth to positive experiences that many have not encountered before.

Many programs are coached or chaperoned by committed police officers who believe in the philosophy that to build a better future we have to start with our youth.
