Police Activities League
The Police Activities League (PAL) is an outreach program created in 2013 to help build trusting relationships between 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, rugby, basketball, running, soccer, swimming, and baseball. For children who are individually registered and not attending through a youth center program, lunch is 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. RESCU, Numerica, the Spokane Parks Foundation and many other local businesses have provided financial support for PAL. If you would like to join our list, contact [email protected].
