The PAL Program is but one aspect of the Department’s multi-faceted, progressive approach to policing in our community in general, and reaching out to the City’s youth specifically.

The Police Activities League of Frederick (PAL) began in August of 1999, and 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 kids on the street. During the school year the PAL program is offered in the evenings at the PAL Center in the Sagner Community and at Hillcrest Elementary School. PAL offers kids a safe nurturing place to learn and interact with the police officers all while having a good time.

For more information please contact Michele Bowman, Community Outreach Coordinator at 301-600-2091.
