Grand Re-Opening of the Tucker PAL Center in West Philadelphia

September 23rd marked the grand re-opening of the Tucker PAL Center in a new location – 4040 Ludlow Street. The Tucker PAL Center is a collaboration between Penn’s Division of Public Safety, Philadelphia Police, the Elwyn Institute and PAL. The director of the new center is Penn Police Officer Cassandra Parks-Devaughn, who has served with the Penn Police department for over 19 years, and has been assigned with PAL since 2005. PAL Commanding Officer Evelyn Cintron noted, “The relationships Officer Parks-Devaughn has forged with these kids and their parents are a prime example of proactive community policing.”

Vice President Maureen Rush noted the ideal location, “It’s in a pocket of development just north of Market Street and is close to our public safety building on Chestnut Street as well as the University City District headquarters. We look forward to continuing our partnership with PAL in supporting the children of West Philadelphia.”

The Philadelphia Police Athletic League (PAL) works with area youth in academics, athletics and the arts. The PAL motto “Cops Helping Kids” is about police forging relationships with the community they serve. Through PAL, police officers, supported by civilians and volunteers, offers programs in which more than 18,000 Philadelphia children participated last year.

If your child is interested joining the center, and to learn more about PAL, visit PhillyPAL.org or call 215-291-9000.
