Dear PAL Families and Friends,

I hope this letter finds you well. I wanted to update everyone regarding PAL’s response to the COVID-19 virus and our plans for the summer.

PAL will follow all precautions outlined by Torrington Public Schools as they relate to COVID-19. We believe that it is essential that public health best practices be adhered to in order to safeguard our community. We will continue to mirror the policies set forth by Torrington Public Schools. We feel that a consistent message to families in our community is important, in order to prevent confusion and conflicting messages.

We continue to plan for our summer camps and activities. Our goal is to be completely operational once we can do so safely. Our camps will include a golf camp at Greenwoods Country Club, Make the Play Basketball Camp at the Torrington Middle School, Crime Scene Investigation Camp at the Torrington PD, and our End of the Year Camp at Elk’s Pond. We are evaluating a woodworking camp, an art camp, and a firefighting camp.

During this unprecedented time in our lives all of us at PAL wish you all good health. We look forward to becoming completely operational as soon as it is safe to do so. We will keep you updated on our web page and social media as information becomes available.

If you need to contact us please email

We at PAL wish everyone good health, be safe everyone.



Christopher Smedick

Why is PAL an important institution?

Chief William Baldwin City of Torrington Police Department

The Torrington PAL program is a significant outreach opportunity which provides an interaction between the Torrington area youth and members of the Torrington Police Department. The PAL program offers a way to bridge gaps between law enforcement and the youth which will be a positive benefit for our city by being a valuable resource for our local youth. As the police chief I am very much committed to this program as I believe that our youth are a significant asset to all of us. It is through the PAL program and our partnerships with the business and residential Torrington community, that our department will be able to reach out and interact with the Torrington area youth, as well as those adults that support them, to build positive relationships. It is through the hard efforts and  hard work of the Torrington PAL Board of Directors and our partnership that makes this program the success that it is and will continue to be.
