The Easton Police Athletic League (P.A.L.) was initially organized in 1951. The goal of the Easton Police Department is to help keep kids off the streets by involving them in various sports/activites programs. P.A.L. soon blossomed to be a major contributor to the youth programs in the Easton area. The center of program activities were housed at the local P.A.L. headquarters at 128 South 6th Street, Easton. Unfortunately, the building expenses began to pile up and led to the building closing in 1974. P.A.L. continues to exist through sponsoring teams through various local youth organizations. In 1984, the P.A.L. chapter dissolved due to a lack of funding and volunteers. The P.A.L. chapter was re-established in 1987 with strong community and police support. The Easton P.A.L. officially joined the National Association of P.A.L. on February 17, 1988. Although the chapter does not have a community building, P.A.L. continues to sponsor youth activites more than ever! Each year, hundreds of area youths take part in a P.A.L. sponsored programs.
P.A.L. Sponsored Activities: Boys/Girls Basketball, Wrestling, Boxing, Baseball, Soccer, Swimming, Tennis, Cheerleading, Arts and Crafts
