SEAPAL: More Than a Game

The Seattle Police Activities League (SEAPAL) is in full swing. SEAPAL is a proactive, prevention-oriented strategy which relies on the cooperation, coordination and building of relationships between youth, police and community through recreation and cultural enrichment with police officers serving as coaches, mentors and role models. The SEAPAL objectives are:

• To create a safe and healthy environment indicated by increased participation and reduction in crime around the communities
• To give youth alternatives to conflict resolution through participation in programs
• To build character and develop leadership excellence among our youth
• To train, promote and build strong minds through Athletics and Community stewardship – A mentorship model.
