LPD offers Citizen's Police Academy

In an effort to educate and inform the community, the City of Lebanon, in partnership with the Lebanon Police Department, provides its residents and business owners a voluntary police academy.

The six-week program entails lectures, presentations, as well as hands-on activities to teach and inform its participants the many facets of law enforcement and introduce the police department that serves them. This stimulating and informative program will give each enrollee a better sense of the Lebanon Police Department and the issues concerning everyday operations, said Chief Scott Bowen. Citizens will also have a better understanding of their role in the Community Oriented Policing philosophy.

The purpose of the Citizen’s Police Academy is to foster better communications between citizens and police through education. A well-informed citizen is more likely to share their experiences with the community as the opportunity arises. Everyone benefits from enhancing citizen's understanding of the role and function of their police department.
