Based on the premise that reciprocity in relationships between officers and the community enhances positive youth development. Officers willingly engage to support our youth in achieving their success. Sports programs include Baseball, Basketball, Cheerleading, Dance, Football, Track & Field, Golf, and Softball.
The PAL Plus mentoring programs provide youth healthy relationships, positive supervision, and life-changing influence from beloved law enforcement officers.
