Odessa PAL is an active member of the National Association of Police Athletic Leagues.
PAL is a youth program that utilizes athletic and recreational activities to create trust and understanding between police officers and youth. Our program emphasizes positive interaction with police officers and other adult role models.
Every summer the Odessa Police Athletic League has a Summer Camp. This program is six weeks long. In this program Police Officers oversee, mentor and instruct sporting events, teamwork and leadership activities. During the eight-hour day the children will participate in sports activities such as baseball, basketball, volleyball, kickball, archery and bowling. We also incorporate sports field trips into this program such as bowling, swimming and ice skating. This program accommodates up to one hundred fifty children depending on our departments staffing capabilities.
The Odessa Police Department recognizes the need to interact with the youth of our community and provide a positive environment for children. PAL helps to develop strong, positive attitudes with youth towards our police officers in their journey to becoming mature and responsible citizens.For more information about the Odessa Police Department's P.A.L. Program please call Corporal Michael Hamilton at 432-335-3361
