What is the East Valley Police Activity League Supporters (PALS)?
East Valley Pals is a non-profit booster organization for the North Hollywood Division of the Los Angeles Police Department. Our board raises funds and provides financial support for the men and women of the LAPD. It often comes as a surprise to the average Angeleno how difficult it is for the city to pay for some essential equipment, training, and special events. PALS attempts to bridge that gap, acting as a lifeline to our financially challenged city.
