About Us

The Frederick Police Activities League (PAL) is a recreation-oriented juvenile crime prevention program that relies heavily upon athletics and recreational activities to create and cement the bond between police officers and the youth on the street.

PAL is based on the strong belief that children who are reached early enough can develop a healthy, positive attitude toward police officers in their journey through life toward adulthood and good citizenship.

PAL brings youngsters under the supervision and constructive influence of police officers and expands public awareness about their role in the community. Our goal is to provide positive and educational alternatives to gangs, drugs, criminal and other anti-social behavior. We achieve this goal through sports, educational and recreational activities in a healthy, structured, safe, and fun environment.

Frederick P.A.L.’s Mission

Through positive interactions with the Police Activities League, Law Enforcement, and Community Members, our youth will realize their full individual potential and will become contributing members of their community.
