More Information

Hollenbeck PAL was founded in 1992 through the efforts of Hollenbeck Division of the Los Angeles Police Department and community residents to implement sports activities to high-risk youths in response to the juvenile crime increase in the area. In 2003 PAL acquired its own 501(c)(3) non-profit status and is now governed by a board of directors compromed of community leaders, law enforcement personnel, and business professionals.

Our ultimate goal is a community without crime, where children have equal access to opportunity, and where peace officers help drive the community’s vitality.
