This September 15th I am running the Apple Tree half marathon here in Vancouver WA to support the Great organization PALs- Police Activities League. I been fortunate to attend some of in school groups that PALs run in our community. I have seen the positive impact it makes on youth in the moment. I believe it will change the future relationship of the youth and officers involved for the best.
The Police Activities League of Vancouver is a non-profit organization that partners with law enforcement agencies to promote positive relationships between law enforcement officers and youth in the community through educational programs and recreational opportunities.
PALs reduces juvenile crime rates in the city of Vancouver by empowering youth and building positive connection between youth and officers. PAL offers many at-risk children with year-round programs and special events that foster teamwork, enforce citizenship, and provide the opportunities to work with law enforcement officers as caring adult mentors.
