Our History

In 1940, under the direction of Nassau County's first Police Commissioner Abraham Skidmore, theNassau County Police Boys Club was formed. Since that time there have been several changes including changing the name of the organization in 1987 to the Nassau County Police Activity League (NCPAL). While the name may have changed, the mission of the organization remains the same today as it was back in 1940. Our mission is to prevent juvenile delinquency and aid in development of good citizenship through positive interaction of youths and police officers.
The NCPAL is a tax-exempt, not-for-profit organization that is operated by an executive board, a board of trustees, and with the tireless help of hundreds of volunteers. Presently there are thirty (30) units, which cover over forty (40) different communities. The Nassau County Police Department provides officers to oversee these units and to interact with the youths of these communities. Activities that are offered include sports, crafts, educational, and other programs. These activities vary from unit to unit and are based on the local community is needs and interests
