Connecting Kids, Cops & Communities
Police know the struggles that kids face.
Our programs are the key to helping break the cycles of
crime and delinquency among at risk youth.
01. Promoting Academic Success
Academic success is essential to the overall success of youth in our community.
Our PAL Patrol Program works with specific classrooms to help motivate students and ensure success in school. Officers assist teachers by visiting their classrooms to discuss different topics or issues students are facing, in hopes of creating positive connections between police and students.
The PAL Literacy Events program promotes the importance of reading by connecting VPD/CCSO staff and PAL Volunteers with students in the community. PAL visits various schools throughout the year providing students with free books and the opportunity to read with officers.
