Stratford Connecticut–Today, Senator Ed Gomes (D-Bridgeport, Stratford) and Representative Joseph Gresko (D-Stratford) joined Stratford Police Chief Patrick Ridenhour to announce a $25,000 state grant for the Stratford Police Activities League (P.A.L.).
“Our communities are safer when we work together,” said Senator Ed Gomes (D-Bridgeport, Stratford). “This grant for the Stratford P.A.L. will help fund more activities and opportunities for Stratford police officers to build relationships and trust with the youth in our community. Our kids are safer when they are building character and leadership skills in programs like the Police Explorer Program and various athletic leagues.”
“Securing the funding for PAL fulfills the commitment that police officials have made to Stratford. The PAL program has really been rejuvenated, and this funding goes a long way. I also want to thank Senator Gomes for going to bat for PAL. It’s great when everyone comes together to represent Stratford and secures important funding for the town,” Rep. Joe Gresko (D-Stratford) said.
The Stratford P.A.L. is an organization of law enforcement officers and civilians who work together towards the positive development of our youth. Every dollar raised is used directly for the benefit of the many programs sponsored by the PAL.
The PAL helps support the young people who are currently involved in the following programs:
PAL Boxing and Martial Arts
Police Explorer Program
PAL Rifle League
Pop Warner Football and Cheerleading
Baseball: Stratford Little League, American Legion, Cal Ripken,
Babe Ruth and Stratford Titans
Stratford United Soccer
