Because Every Kid needs a PAL…
PARTNERING WITH THE LAPD FOR OUR YOUTH AND OUR COMMUNITY
Since 1973, LAPD Devonshire PALS has forged a partnership between the LAPD and business and community leaders in an effort to reduce juvenile crime, prevent gang activity and build muscle in the character of young children and teens. PALS offers after school enrichment programs with LAPD officers working directly with the kids as coaches, counselors, and tutors. PAL promotes trust and understanding between young people and police officers. Our programs are based on the conviction that young people – if they are reached early enough – can develop strong, positive attitudes toward police officers and the law. The youth center program’s includes Police Cadets for youth looking to law enforcement as a career and the Jr. Cadets program, designed for our younger kids.
