The boxing gym will provide a public after school program for teens, around the Forest and Audelia area, in Lake Highlands. It will be run by the City of Dallas and the Police Athletic League (PALS). The gym brings youth under the supervision and positive influence of a law enforcement agency and expands public awareness about the role of a police officer, reinforcing the responsible values and attitudes instilled in young people by their parents.
