Cambridge Police Department’s ‘PAL’ program officially underway
CAMBRIDGE, Md. – After some minor setbacks, a popular after school program is finally up and running in Cambridge. Back in October, the Cambridge Police Department had plans to start up their police athletic league (PAL) program. But after dealing with some scheduling changes, the program wasn’t able to start until late January. Since beginning, program organizers say it’s been a hit. And it’s allowed children of all ages to bond and spend time with police officers while also having fun in safe environment.
“Enjoying the games they are enjoying with the life lessons that were teaching them the snack of course the kids love that. It gives them a safe place they get to learn about police officers they can see us in a different light and just have a good time and be in school but they get to have fun and learn some life lessons,” said Cambridge community policing officer, Kason Washington.
Washingotn adds that the PAL program is always looking for volunteers to help out. If you’re interested in volunteering you can contact officer Washington or officer John Foster at the Cambridge Police Department at 410-228-3333
