Our Mission at Torrington PAL
The Torrington Police Activities League promotes character development and self esteem while building positive relationships among children, our police officers, and the community. Our Program works in partnership with the Torrington Police Department providing children with alternatives to crime, violence and substance abuse.
Why is PAL an important institution?
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.
Certified Athletic Trainer on sight
We are very pleased to announce that we will have a Certified Athletic Trainer on sight every Saturday for our basketball games. The athletic trainer will be primarily located at the Armory but will be available to respond to Vogel if necessary for an injury. Please feel free to confer with the Certified Athletic Trainer at any time throughout the season.
Many thanks to our corporate sponsor, the Charlotte Hungerford Hospital and Hartford Healthcare Rehabilitation Network, for providing this premier service for our PAL athletes.
