Police Activities League
The Police Activities League (PAL) is an outreach program created in 2013 to help build trusting relationships between at-risk youth and local law enforcement. Each summer, the PAL program offers fun, structured activities for youth, with opportunities to make friends and memories at their local parks. PAL engages youth with positive academic and athletic programs, such as flag football, basketball, running, soccer, swimming, and baseball. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) enrichment activities and lunch are provided at every session. Throughout the season, youth participants focus on five core values: honesty, integrity, leadership, sportsmanship and respect. PAL program takes a holistic approach to crime prevention, focusing on reducing drug and gang involvement, as well as making positive decisions. PAL is a collaborative program of Spokane Police Department, Spokane Parks Department, Spokane Parks Foundation, local community centers, YMCA and many other organizations working together to supply a myriad of resources in a central location. Numerica and the Spokane Parks Foundation have provided financial support for PAL.
