PAL at Work: Supporting our local youth

Rancho Cordova Police Activities League (PAL) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit youth organization. Our mission is to involve and mentor community youth in social, educational, recreational, and leadership activities, which will deter crime, increase self-esteem, and promote a positive relationship with law enforcement.

We promote our values through the leadership of our officers who work hands-on with the youth in our programs. Overall, we believe that reaching at-risk children early enough in this mentoring environment, we can improve their chances of success in the future.
