Erie Police Athletic League (PAL)
The Erie Police Athletic League is dedicated to assisting and inspiring Erie youth to realize their full individual potential as productive members of society, and to avoid criminal activity. By engaging active and retired Police Officers and Sheriff's Deputies, supported by civilian volunteers, we offer educational, athletic, and recreational programs to at-risk youth. We coordinate with existing community organizations to help nurture a special relationship between cops and kids.
