Visalia Police Activities League
Kids, Cops, and Caring Citizens - A winning combination!

 

The Visalia Police Activities League (P.A.L.) was established in 1991 as a City-wide, after-school crime prevention program to provide outreach to local youth and build positive relationships between youth, police officers and the community. The mission of Visalia P.A.L. is to foster a bond with mutual trust and understanding between police officers and youth through interaction in a non-confrontational setting. A variety of educational and recreational programs and activities are offered to youth ages 7 to 17 years with an emphasis placed on reaching those who are "at-risk".  P.A.L. membership and the programs it offers are free. For further information, contact 559-732-2233 or visit us at our location at 701 East Race Avenue, Visalia.
