How PAL Works
PAL prevents youth crime by providing structured activities supervised by officers and community members. This reduction in crime is achieved through supervised athletics as well as educational and social development activities, which foster self-esteem and respect for law and order.
Since PAL's inception, there have been more than 3,000 participants. PAL currently offers a number of organized activities, including basketball, dodgeball and bowling.
