The new Police Athletic League got some parents and teens to commit to being a part of the partnership between law enforcement and the community Saturday at Montgomery Mall
It's once in a blue moon that shoppers will witness an Upper Gwynedd Township Police motorcycle making laps inside the Montgomery Mall.

The North Penn PAL kicked off its presence in the area with a sign-up and awareness …
