Celebrating 25 years of San Mateo PAL

2022 marks the 25th anniversary of the San Mateo Police Activities League, beginning with some of our first activities such as Camping, Judo, Soccer, and Junior Giants in 1997. We have been working hard to build the bond between cops & kids and support youth and families in our community with social, emotional, and physical development opportunities. And now, it's time to celebrate!
