    A Message from Chief Phillip L. Sanchez

    The Pasadena Police Department exists to serve the community. The Pasadena Way is the framework of our service and is the common thread bonding us to our community partners and our children. The Police Activities League program allows law enforcement to reach children at a vulnerable, formative age to provide structured after school and summer time activities. Through sports, homework tutoring, computer sciences, culinary arts, mentoring and so much more, we strive to enrich the lives of children and “Encourage Pasadena Area Youth to be Good Citizens through a Partnership with the Pasadena Police Department.” In my youth as an Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America, I have fond memories of participating in adventurous and educational activities that helped influence and shape my future. I believe youth programs like PAL strongly contribute to the success of our youth and develop a solid foundation for our future leaders. Thank you for supporting PAL and visiting our PAL website at: www.pasadenapal.com

     Pasadena Police Activities League (P.A.L.) firmly believes that all youth are assets to our community and serve as the future generation. P.A.L.'s programs and activities are used as a vehicle to help youth in our community develop skills that build self-esteem and encourage them to reach their full potential.While there are numerous admirable youth programs in operation, P.A.L. is unique in that it adds one key ingredient, Police Officers. This relationship serves to support the concept of “Building the Bond between Cops and Kids.” P.A.L. has become a part of the fabric that forms a safe Pasadena. P.A.L. youth participate in the Annual Summer Youth Leadership Conference and Life After High School program. P.A.L. youth participate in CAL-PAL basketball, soccer and karate tournaments. 

    In several instances, teams from Pasadena P.A.L. placed amongst the top competitors and were awarded trophies. Hundreds of P.A.L. youth participated in recreational field trips throughout the year, including visits to Hearst Castle, Museums, Theme Parks, Roller Skating, Ice Skating, the Pasadena Playhouse, surfing & camping trips to state beaches, and celebrate responsible and positive behavior. Pasadena P.A.L. programs consist of culinary arts, personal development, and boys and girls groups.  Many more programs are being planned to meet the needs of a diverse youth population. Because of the generous support of businesses, charitable organizations and individuals, our youth continue to participate and benefit from the many programs offered by P.A.L.. The staff at P.A.L. believes that “Every Kid needs a PAL”, and we thank you for being one.
