The Sparta P.A.L. was started in the 1960's by Fred Geffken (former Sparta Police Chief) with the mission of Police Officers interacting with Sparta Youth in a positive way through athletics. Currently the Sparta PAL provides programs in boys and girls basketball, volleyball, and fencing, and a variety of other activities at our facility at 38 Station Road. Additionally the Sparta PAL along with the Sparta Police Department sponsors the Sparta Police Youth Division which is comprised of approximately 150 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th graders that do community service projects in Sparta Township as well as participate in educational programs promoting anti drugs and anti violence. This group is led entirely by Sparta Police Officers. The PAL is now under the direction of the current Chief of Police, Ernest Reigstad.
