About Hollywood PAL
1358 N. Wilcox Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90028, US
It is the purpose of the Hollywood Police Activities League, a community-based crime prevention program, to provide young people ages 6-17 with positive alternatives to gangs and drugs. Through interaction with police officers in recreational, educational, athletic and fine arts activities, young people are given the opportunity to form healthy, positive attitudes toward the police, the society and the laws they represent.
The Police Activities League is a youth crime prevention program first instituted in the 1930's, which relies on a variety of athletic and recreational activities to cement a bond between police officers and youth. The program keeps "at-risk" kids off the street by providing them with positive alternatives to drugs and gangs and gives them a variety of ways to become more involved with their community. PAL is nationally program with a membership exceeding 1.5 million children aged 6 to 18. PAL has more than 300 law enforcement agencies serving over 700 cities with 1,700 facilities throughout the United States
The Hollywood PAL chapter, which was formed in 1996, aims to benefit youth by teaching skills and providing opportunities that might not normally be available. With the help of several LAPD officers who work full-time with our youth, we strive to teach children to become productive, responsible and caring individuals. The success of our organization is achieved through the hard work and dedication of the many who give their time and resources. Hollywood PAL offers martial arts, soccer, Hollywood Fit Club, the Junior Police Academy, the Youth Leadership Council, and a college scholarship program, as well as monthly special activities and field trips.
