DPD Advanced Junior Police Academy

On Saturday, February 3, 2018, the Junior Police Academy held an Advanced Academy session at Dallas Police Headquarters. Over 50 Dallas kids attended the event and were put through a day of Police Training. As they walked into the room the kids were each assigned to different teams. As they reported to their team leader, they were given an itinerary of what their day would consist of. 

Each team went through physical training, squad car diving course, force continuum, crime scene investigation, gangs and drugs prevention and the 9-1-1 communications center. As the kids had a day of learning they were given a lunch break in which they were taught dinning etiquette. At the end of their academy training the kids attended a graduation ceremony and received their completion awards.

Dallas PAL & Explorers Attend Amelia Earhart Luncheon

On Saturday, February 20, 2016, Dallas PAL and Dallas Explorers attended the Zonta Club of Dallas Amelia Earhart Luncheon at Arlington Hall in Lee Park.  This event is for ladies only and is all about empowering young women through STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).

The PAL boxers, scholars and Explorers enjoyed a three course formal meal in the beautiful main ballroom surrounded by very successful women from our own city.  The guest speaker was an Amelia Earhart Fellow who is a graduate student at University of California, Berkley.  The girls learned about scholarships and fellowships. Our young ladies left this fabulous event with the understanding that they have many options and have many people who believe in them.  Three of our own girls won table prizes!
