Our Mission

The Nassau County Police Activity League, Merrick Unit, is an organization formed over 60 years ago to benefit children, not only from our community but all surrounding communities. We strive, with the help of the Police Department, to develop children’s character to become fine productive adults in future years.


Merrick PAL has many programs for children from Pre School to Senior’s in High School. These programs help children learn sportsmanship and develop athletic skills for future years. Many of our children have come back, as adults, to volunteer as coaches and staff members.


We need the help of the parents in volunteering time to help with the activities.  By volunteering you not only help the children but also create a safer neighborhood.  Please browse through this website for all the programs that we offer or call 516 867 6279.





It is better to build youth than mend adults.
