DeLand PAL launches new Auto Mechanics program

May 5th, 2023

The DeLand Police Athletic League launched a new auto mechanics program where kids will learn the basics of vehicle care. 

Participants gathered outside the DeLand Police Department Headquarters Thursday night for the first class where they sat for a presentation before moving outside for a hands-on tutorial.

During the course, DPD Sgt. Tagle will cover the basics such as changing a tire, checking oil levels, changing fluids and more. 


DPAL is a unique, non-profit joint venture between the DeLand Police Department and the Greater DeLand area community. We provide young people with positive role models, help them build self-esteem and give them a safe place for activities.
