As stated above, the P.A.C.E. initiative has been in operation since 2005. The initial number of participants was 90 forming six soccer teams. The participant levels have increased yearly. In 2016, P.A.C.E. served 2269 youth in four different sports.
In 2016, P.A.C.E. logged 87 regular volunteers to the program, which did not include those that helped on a limited basis.
Police Athletics for Community Engagement (P.A.C.E. Omaha) is a 501(c)3 organization officially formed in April of 2015. However, the initiative has been in existence since 2005 under the umbrella of the Latino Peace Officers Association. The initiative is a police community relations program designed to help "at-risk" and disadvantaged youth ages 8 to 18 avoid the negative influences of street gangs and the criminal element by providing free organized sports to participants coached by police officers. This helps build a much needed bridge between police and the citizens they serve.
