PAL Event Calendar

As we are all aware, this past year has been extremely challenging to everyone. There are families in our community who have been in financial distress, unable to purchase many things including some of their basic needs, especially food. The Torrington Police Activities League, the Police Department and the Police Explorers have joined forces with Food Share and the Connecticut Food Bank to distribute 1200 boxes of free food on a bi-weekly basis to our Torrington community. We are happy to be part of such an amazing program and look forward helping our community.
 
I am requesting that you consider volunteering some time, giving back to your community. We are currently asking for volunteers to help on Saturday, April 10th from 8am-12pm. Through volunteering you’re supporting the community that supports our PAL programs. Giving back to your community helps so many people, young and old and is a noble act that your family and your PAL family would be very proud of and greatly appreciate. Eligible volunteers are in grades 7-12.
 
We ask that volunteers arrive at 8:00 a.m. The distribution point will be located on Hogan Drive near Torringford West Street. At some point Hogan drive will be a one-way street traveling west (away from) the East School towards Torringford West Street. Depending on traffic flow, volunteers may have to walk in from Torringford West St. and Hogan Drive. Volunteers should dress for the weather, as this event will go off rain or shine.

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.
