PAL is a unique, non-profit joint venture between The DeLand Police Department and the Greater DeLand Area Community. We provide young people with positive role models, help them build self-esteem and give them a safe place for activities. A local volunteers PAL Board of Directors oversees the operations.
The On Track Program is a way for the DeLand PD, WVPAL, and JC’S Bike Shop to teach students from the community bike safety and trail riding. The concept of this program is TRAILS:
Teach our student athletes the rules of bike riding
Respect for their community while riding
Assemble and maintain their equipment
Interact with Officers
Lead by example
Safety equipment needed for riding
The program will run for 6 weeks. We will meet on Wednesday evenings 4:30pm to 6pm outside the DeLand Sally Port.
