The Community Policing Unit also sponsors the Police Athletic League (P.A.L).  Children are encouraged to participate in the various athletic events offered.  P.A.L. offers boys and girls track, boys and girls basketball, baseball, football, wrestling, boxing, cheerleading and a girl's dance team that performs for the sporting events.  Hopefully in the spring of 2001 P.A.L. will begin girls softball.  The P.A.L. 13 - 14 year old boys basketball team won the City of East Point Recreation Championship.

The recreational activities provided by P.A.L. help to expand the horizons of the youth within the City of East Point, and reduce truancy, drug, and gang activity.  P.A.L. also provides more opportunity for police officers to interact with the children in a positive way.

The active participation of volunteers and parents has always been greatly appreciated and encouraged.
