Auburn Police Activities League (PAL) http://www.auburnmaine.gov/Pages/Government/Police-PAL
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.
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).
