Auburn Police Activities League (PAL)

 

The story of Auburn PAL is one that impacts the youth of our community.

As a law enforcement agency, we know that the inner-city area of Auburn is the hub for police calls for service.

In fact, four years of crime data showed us that 23% of all crimes committed by youth offenders in Auburn took place within an area of less than half a square mile. 25% of all police calls for service and 28% of all youth victims were victimized in this same small area.

In an effort to transform these statistics and provide positive experiences for at-risk youth, the Auburn Police Department announced the foundation of the Auburn Police Activities League (PAL).

Auburn's City Council agreed to turn over a vacant building at 24 Chestnut Street, along with 7+ acres of green space, basketball courts and playgrounds for use by Auburn PAL.

The city also agreed to use a portion of our Community Block Development Grant (CDBG) funds to refurbish the building.

The Auburn PAL Center provides educational and athletic activities for 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade kids after school and during the summer, not to mention positive interaction with police officers.

Renovations to our PAL Center are finally completed! This has been an incredible community project - and we are humbled by the contributions of materials and labor by our countless community partners.

IMPORTANT:

The PAL Center has fully-screened volunteers as well as adult and youth mentors on hand to supervise and coordinate PAL activities. Parents/guardians should note that the PAL Center is NOT a day care, it is a 'drop-in' center. Members will check in and check out. Once they leave the PAL Center (building), they are no longer under our supervision. This includes the external grounds, sports fields, and playgrounds.
