What is the purpose of a Police Activity League?
The primary goal of Police Activity Leagues is to provide young people with opportunities and resources to learn, develop skills and have fun in a supported safe environment.
In general, PAL programs aim to build relationships between youth and law enforcement officers, with the mission of connecting with the greater community by providing activities that foster understanding.
PALs are designed to give youth positive outlets for expressing themselves in meaningful ways, all while engaging with positive role models. By establishing these relationships early on during an individual’s development years, it helps create more trusting connections between citizens and law enforcement.
Overall, PALs are of great benefit to our communities. In short: PAL’s mission is ultimately about providing young people with an environment where they can be successful while forming lasting connections within their local community
Broadly, PAL Initiatives offer lessons on conflict resolution, as well as important life skills.
