The Hawaiʻi Police Activities League (HI-PAL) was able to move forward with its summer school program despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

The program took place at Hilo Intermediate School. HI-PAL conducted physical fitness, car detailing and fishing basics classes to intermediate students while complying with the coronavirus proclamations and precautions.

“These programs provided a positive atmosphere in which officers and youth could interact and share their concerns and hopes for the future,” according to a press release from HPD.

HI-PAL looks forward to continuing to work with youth to build trust, develop character and promote positive moral and ethical values.
