MCPAL is a youth crime prevention program that utilizes educational, athletic and recreational activities to create trust and understanding between police officers and youth.
It is based on the conviction that young people if they are reached early enough can develop strong positive attitudes towards police officers in their journey through life toward the goal of maturity and good citizenship.
The MCPAL program brings youth under the supervision and positive influence of a law enforcement agency and expands public awareness about the role of a police officer and the reinforcement of the responsible values and attitudes instilled in young people by their parents.
