Join the Lakeland Police Department and departments across the nation on April 21, 2012 in the National PAL Mentoring Day. The day will be filled with many activities and an opportunity to learn more about the Lakeland Police Department PAL Program.
PAL seeks to promote and safeguard the interests and general welfare of the youth of the community; to instill good health habits, good sportsmanship, and high morals and civic standards in the youth of the community, to help fulfill the need for recreational, educational and social activities that are designed to rehabilitate youthful first-time offenders and prevent their return into the criminal justice system.
The Lakeland PAL is located at 1725 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue.
The club is for boys and girls ages 4 to 17. For more information on the program, please go to the PAL website at http://www.lakelandpal.org/index.html.
