Serving The Youth Of Tehama County
The Tehama County Police Activities League (P.A.L.) was established in 1995 to provide educational, athletic, and other recreational activities to the youth of Tehama County. As a 501(c) 3 public non-profit corporation, we are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors of 19 members. The board, made up of law enforcement officers from various agencies and other representatives from our community, meet on a monthly basis.
Tehama County PAL is a youth crime prevention program that includes educational, athletic, and other recreational activities. Tehama County PAL is more than a program. It is a philosophy of fair play and good sportsmanship, which promotes a positive relationship among law enforcement, the community and our youth.
Throughout Tehama County we are constantly reminded about the need for us to invest time in the youth of our community. In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Our youth need to know that someone cares about them. Unfortunately, Tehama County does not have the benefit of a Boys & Girls Club or YMCA. Therefore, Tehama County PAL's vision for the future is very simple: To create a safe environment for children and reduce juvenile crime in Tehama County by providing our youth a way to find guidance, life perspective, and authority-figure role models they can trust. Our objective is to offer this and more! Our programs are designed to promote and enhance the development of our youth by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, and belonging.
Demonstrating a stong commitment to this service, Captain Sanders and Lieutenant Flowerdew serve on the PAL Board of Directors.
