The South Bend Police Athletic League, Inc. was founded through the vision of Chief Darryl Boykins. It 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 South Bend PAL program brings youth under the supervision and positive influence of SBPD Officers 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.

The South Bend Police Athletic League has received acknowledgement for it’s innovative programs and work with youth through a publication in the Journal of Research in Character Education,” Champions for Children: Reaching Out to Urban Youth Through Sports”, Author: Power, F ClarkDate published: July 1, 2010.
