It is the mission, purpose and focus of the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office PAL to reduce juvenile crime and instill positive values, character and leadership skills.  PAL will provide safe activities for Putnam County youth.  Our athletic, educational and mentoring programs emphasize positive interaction with law enforcement officers, teachers, community leaders and other adult role models.

It is our goal to afford every youth in Putnam County an opportunity to grow and develop both socially and educationally through caring and positive mentors and collaborative partners throughout the county.

Youth that are nurtured in a safe and fun environment have been successful in many areas of their life and have gone on to be productive members of society.  In a county with tremendous support and commitment to youth, our PAL feels we are on the verge of making an incredible impact on the lives of not only our kids, but the family component as a whole.
