The Sheriff PAL (Police Athletic League) program aims to create a safe environment and a structure where law enforcement and community partners empower young people to reach their full potential through athletics, mentoring, and other programs.
Promoting healthy communities through relationships and recreation.
The Sheriff PAL program is a 501(c)(3) organization founded by Sheriff Michael J. Bouchard in 2015. Sheriff PAL is a dynamic collaboration between the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, the Oakland County Health Division, Healthy Pontiac, We Can! coalition, Oakland University, Dream Center of Pontiac, Pontiac School District, the City of Pontiac, and numerous partners within the faith community. The Sheriff PAL program is only successful through collaborations with other dynamic community organizations. These partnerships provide advocacy, facilities, and overall programming support.
