What is Visalia P.A.L.?
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 & build positive relationships between youth, police officers & the community. The mission of Visalia P.A.L. is to foster a bond with mutual trust & understanding between police officers & youth through interaction in a non-confrontational setting. A variety of educational & recreational programs & 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 & all its programs are free. For further information, contact 559-732-2233 or visit us at our location at 701 East Race Avenue, Visalia.
