STAR/PAL’s elementary aged programming focuses on developing positive behaviors in our youth and equipping them with the essential skills and tools necessary for becoming a positive role model for others. Programs are school site based and facilitated by law enforcement officers. The goal of our programs is to help youth see officers as a resource in their lives.
