    Abington Police Department Police Athletic League (PAL)The Abington Police Athletic League (PAL), a non-profit community organization formed in 2001, seeks to prevent juvenile crime and violence while encouraging personal growth among our young people. PAL centers, staffed by APD and community volunteers, offer structured, personal guidance in a safe, friendly environment. PAL offers a wide range of physical and intellectual activities that address the needs of Abington's youth. Providing positive adult role models is a critical component of our PAL efforts. In Abington, law enforcement officers and community volunteers work with young people to encourage positive development as members of the local community. While Abington PAL is sponsored through the Abington Township Police Department, PAL receives no direct funding. As such, PAL is dependent on volunteer support from community-minded individuals, business leaders, corporations and foundations.MontgomeryAbington Police Community ProgrammingAbington Township Police Department
