“The Portland Police Bureau makes spring break a priority each year,” says Chief Derrick Foxworth. “Our goal is to have a violence-free week, where youth are engaged in lawful activity and enjoy a fun, safe week.”
Numerous organizations, including the Police Activities League (PAL), will be hosting youth programs during the next seven days. “PAL provides structured, supervised activities for area youth,” says Maura White, Executive Director of PAL. “Our spring break activities range from sports to art, as well as activity-oriented field trips. It’s always a positive, fun and safe time for kids.” Families are encouraged to contact PAL at (503) 823-0250 or Portland Parks and Recreation or visit their websites at www.palkids.org or www.portlandparks.org.
