Citizens Police Academy
In an effort to educate and inform the community, the Lebanon Police Department provides its residents and business owners a voluntary police academy. The six week program entails lectures, presentations and hands-on activities to educate its participants about the many facets of law enforcement. The program will give each enrollee a better sense of the Lebanon Police Department and the issues relating to everyday operations. Citizens will also have a better understanding of their role in the Community Oriented Policing philosophy.
The Citizens Police Academy is an opportunity for members of the community to become closely acquainted with the roles and responsibilities of the police department as well as foster better communication between citizens and police through education. Everyone benefits from enhancing citizens’ understanding of their police department.
