In an era of community policing, LAPD's Hollenbeck division is ahead of the curve with it's Hollenbeck PAL program. HPAL was founded in 1992 in the heart of Boyle Heights. HPAL, long known for its positive interactions for kids and law enforcement, is now expanding with mental health services. As the LAPD marks 150 years, we highlight Hollenbeck PAL and the police officers attached to it.
