Welcome to San Jose PAL


Our Mission:

"The mission of the San Jose Police Activities League is to forge an everlasting bond between Police, Youth, and Community through Athletics, Academics, and act of GOODWILL"

San Jose Police Activities League is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that has over 1800 kids participating. San Jose PAL is based on the conviction that if young people are impacted positively at an early enough age they can develop strong, positive attitudes towards police officers, the law, and their respective communities, while monumentally decreasing gang activity, classroom absenteeism, and early dropout rates, young pregnancies, crime, and bullying. Since 1967, the mission of the San Jose Police Activities League ( SJ PAL) has revolved around providing a youth crime prevention program that relies on education, health, athletics, and other recreational activities that cement a bond between Police Officers and the youth in our community.‚Äč

San Jose Police Cadet Program/Programa de Cadetes

The Law Enforcement Unit (LEU) Cadet Program was created to introduce young people to law enforcement as a career opportunity. The Cadet Program was first organized by the Boy Scouts of America in 1964. The Explorer Program was then administered by volunteers of the San Jose Police Department. In 1968 the program was transferred to direct sponsorship by SJPD when the Police Activities League was formed. With the change of sponsors, the name Explorers was changed to the Law Enforcement Unit. Also in 1968, young women first joined the ranks of the unit. The San Jose Police Activities League is committed to maintaining an outstanding career training program for its police cadets. The individual's personal initiative is the most decisive factor in his or her success.
