The California Police Activities League (California PAL) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was incorporated in 1971. We are a member serving organization that supports our over 90 PAL member chapters that provide law-enforcement based youth programs throughout the state.
California PAL and our member chapters "go where other youth programs do not" to serve the many at-risk youth as possible. Communities have learned that having a local PAL helps kids make better choices to stay out of trouble and reduce juvenile crime while fostering better relations with local law enforcement.
California PAL depends on our supporters to help us achieve our mission of reducing juvenile crime and with all of our efforts, California PAL has proven time and time again that dedicated community policing by our Police and Sheriff's Departments in conjunction with the PAL program is an effective solution that provides a huge positive influence in our communities and make a difference in the lives of our youth.
High school age PAL Youth attending the 2018 California PAL "Life After High School" Conference at Fresno State University in August 2018. This flagship educational program by California PAL brings youth from around the entire state to Fresno State for a series of training lectures and workshops that will help prepare them for life after high school graduation. By providing programs like "Life After High School", California PAL is making an investment in our future leaders and providing the opportunity for under served at-risk kids to receive training that most would not have received in their communities. Only with the help of our PAL supporters can we continue to bring these programs to the kids. Thank you for supporting California PAL and our mission to make these and other outstanding youth programs possible!
