A Brief History of SAL
In the early 1990s, Napa County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a request from Sheriff Simpson to implement successful, progressive crime prevention strategies by creating the Napa Sheriff’s Activities League. Incorporated in 1992, SAL was established to provide a common meeting ground for law enforcement and youth of the community.
SAL’s initial focus was upon volunteerism within and support of existing programs, especially boxing. Within two years, SAL had established its own facilities, providing a facility for boxing and fitness training, based upon interest expressed by local youth and adult volunteers.
