Review for LOS ANGELES POLICE DEPARTMENT DEVONSHIRE POLICE ACTIVITY LEAGUE, Northridge, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Growing up in an "at risk" area myself as a child, I wish there had been a facility like this I could have gone to. Beyond all the wonderful programs, art, dancing, music lesson, etc., is the staff. They are unbelievably giving and caring. Truly selfless in making sure these children have what they need to not only learn but to have fun.
Most of the children in this area are latch key kids and would not have anywhere to go. PALS promotes trust and understanding between young people and police officers by bringing youth under the supervision and constructive influence of dedicated law enforcement professionals. The program is based on the conviction that young people—if they are reached early enough—can develop strong, positive attitudes toward police officers and the law.
