Cleveland PAL is easy to work with, and will stop at nothing to establish strong relationships between Cleveland youth and Cleveland Police officers. If you have a youth program idea and need staffing support PAL is a great place to turn. Whether it be athletics, leadership, arts, or any other subject matter, PAL can link you up with an appropriate Cleveland Police officer(s) to help. Their mission is invaluable to the safety of Cleveland communities.

I have seen Cleveland PAL in operation, providing educational outlets for our youth along with food and clothing. They are more then an sports program; they are a support agency for our youth and our communities.

As a Cleveland Policer who has since retired I know first hand how much time and effort the PAL organization puts forth in our community. If it were not for their presence the young people would not have the many opportunities to experience excellent role models which help them develop leadership qualities. As an advisor in the Explorer Program we have worked side by side with the PAL organization and have always been impressed with their dedication to serving the families of our community.
