California Police Activities League - Privacy Policy

Legal Notice

California Police Activities League is a statewide organization that serves local independent member organizations (PAL, SAL or YAL Chapters). Together California PAL and the local PAL/SAL/YAL Chapters form one of the state's largest networks of local youth organizations dedicated to bringing together law enforcement and kids to promote the health, social, educational, vocational and character development of California's at-risk youth in a safe and supervised environment.

Each PAL/YAL/SAL chapter organization is a separate legal entity, and is governed by an independent board of directors and is solely responsible for its own affairs, including, but not limited to, matters of safety; compliance with federal, state and local laws; physical facilities; uses of technology, finances; policies and programs and personnel policies and decisions. Each local PAL/SAL/YAL chapter has sole authority to hire, to terminate, to prescribe the duties of and to establish the terms of employment of its employees and officers.
