In 1940, under the direction of Nassau County’s first Police Commissioner, Abraham Skidmore, the Nassau County Police Boys Club was formed. 82 years later our mission is still the same, to prevent juvenile delinquency by bridging the gap between police officers and the youth of our communities.Since that time there have been several changes to our organization, including changing the name to Nassau County Police Activity League (NCPAL). We are proud to be considered one of the largest PALs in the nation with 20,000 youth participating in our programs annually. NCPAL operates 31 units in over 40 communities throughout Nassau County providing sports, crafts, education, and other programs for all boys and girls regardless of race, religion, income or disability.

Each year, NCPAL takes time to recognize some very special volunteers within PAL. These men and women who volunteer their time are the foundation of our programming. NCPAL will be honoring nine outstanding Lifetime PAL Volunteer Heroes this year. These volunteers have been instrumental in the success of programs and activities within their communities for a minimum of ten years. It is with great pride that we recognize their outstanding contributions to PAL and the youth of Nassau County.

What people are saying about PAL

“The involvement of Police Officers is extremely important for the operations of the PAL. The backbone of PAL was – and is – to provide a bridge between the community and police force so that there could be open lines of communication so the youth can understand that the cops are not there to be against them, but are here to help them. Having an active and involved Police presence is fundamental to the PAL Programs.”

“Being a coach and seeing a child score their first goal or get their first basket or hit, the look on their faces and on their parents faces, well nothing beats that and think, I get to be a part o f it.”

“Seeing a kid who in other leagues may not have an opportunity to play and to see him/her not only do well in PAL but thrive is just as exhilarating as watching the best kid play.”

“Teaching kids to enjoy the game and have fun is a priority to me, all while having the children learn and develop not only as athletes, but as upstanding young men and women”
