The Town of Apple Valley Police Department created the Apple Valley Police Activities League (A.V.P.A.L.) in 2003. This is a non-profit organization, funded entirely by private donations.
A.V.P.A.L. is funded by Support from the community, grants, through a partnership with the Town of Apple Valley and the Apple Valley Police Department. The mission of A.V.P.A.L. is uniting law enforcement and communities by providing youth programs which develop discipline, positive self-image, mutual trust and respect.
A.V.P.A.L. offers several different programs to youth in the Town of Apple Valley. These programs were developed after seeing a need for children of the community to learn proper skills to be a successful and productive part of society. The programs range from after school activities at the Youth Center and Boxing Gym to the intervention program known as S.H.O.C.K. and the newest being the Auto Restoration program.
