The Anaheim Police Activities League (APAL) and Cops 4 Kids (C4K) was established to serve all children between the ages of 5 and 17 who live in or attend school in Anaheim. APAL aims to establish positive relationships among youth, police and the community at large. APAL’s goals are to provide alternatives to gangs, drugs and other criminal activities through a vast array of programs. In particular APAL provides a variety of cultural, educational and recreational activities for the youth of Anaheim. These diverse programs help youth develop a positive self image and successful interpersonal skills which will encourage them to stay in school and play a constructive role in the community.
