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!

Even though we weren’t able to do our regular Shop with a Cop this year, we were able to set up a mock store at the King Center for our selected families to still find gifts for loved ones.

Share this holiday tale with the children in your life about how our SWAT Team was able to locate a runaway gingerbread man and return him to the students The Carey School.

🎄This morning our SWAT Team visited The Carey School to return a very important holiday treat that went “missing”.

Listen in as Capt. Peruzzaro tells the tale of how our SWAT Team was able to locate a very spirited Gingerbread Man that ran away from the school.

Feel free ...to share this tale with the young ones in your life. We hope they get as much enjoyment from this story as the students at Carey did.

Happy Holidays from the SMPD SWAT Team! (Only a few members are represented in the video.)

This evening, four of our Explorers graduated from the 91st Explorer Academy. We are proud of their accomplishments, the time and effort they dedicated every weekend, and the tenacity to not only try something out of their comfort zone, but to complete it so successfully that all 4 left with awards... tonight. Congrats to all of you and we are proud of you and your youth advisors made up of a number of our other Explorers who acted as Squad Leaders and Honor Guard members. SMPD definitely represented well tonight.

San Mateo PAL

Every year, Santa Cop and his amazing crew of San Mateo Police Department elves deliver holiday cheer to several amazing kids and families who need a little something extra. We are grateful that through the generosity of others we are able to provide this to those we can during the holidays.
