Cop & Kids

Scotch Plains-Fanwood PAL Cops and Kids Program Comes to Park Middle School By JOHN MOONEY

SPF PAL Intramural Program
The Scotch Plains - Fanwood PAL is introducing their ‘Cops & Kids’ Intramural Pilot Program, for students in grades 5th through 8th. The idea is to get kids off their video games and participate in some lightly-competitive programs with their friends and the Police Officers who serve their community. We want to reach out to all kids, of all abilities, who just want to have some fun! The events will be lightly-competitive, and the kids will get a little exercise as well (and their parents will get a couple of hours to catch up on some things)! The success of this event will depend on turn out, so please encourage your kids to participate! Kids must bring in the signed form letting us know that they have their parents’ permission to participate.
Forms are available in the Middle School Offices. You can also download a copy below.

Police Athletic league (PAL)

The Police Athletic League (PAL) is a recreation oriented juvenile crime prevention program that relies heavily
on athletics and recreational activities to tighten the bond between police officers and kids in the community.
First incorporated in the early 1930's, the PAL has a long history of developing bonds between cops and kids.

The Police Athletic League is based on the belief that children, if reached early enough, can develop a strong,
positive, attitude towards police officers in their journey through life towards the goal of adulthood and

A PAL program brings youngsters under the supervision and constructive influence of a responsible law
enforcement agency and expands public awareness about the role of a police officer. That role is the positive
reinforcement and support of the responsible values and attitudes instilled in young people by their parents.
