The James Biever Police-Community Alliance (JBPCA) has contributed $1,750 to the Lebanon City Police Department for FBI-LEEDA training.

The donation will fund supervisor training for five city police officers.

Lebanon city police Chief Bret Fisher believes this training will not only help nurture capable leadership within the force, but also enhance community engagement.

“The training will develop more capable leaders, which should impact the officers they supervise and ultimately better relations/engagement with the community,” Fisher said in a press release.

The FBI-LEEDA website details that the Basic Supervisory Liability Program is an online course covering constitutional supervisor liability, sexual harassment, deliberate indifference, internal affairs standards, and use of force standards. The mission of FBI-LEEDA is to advance law enforcement leadership and improve management practices through training, education, and networking.

This donation is the latest in a series of contributions by the JBPCA to Lebanon County police departments. In December 2021, the JBPCA made a contribution of $5,000 to the Lebanon City Police Department, funding ACT 120 training for a new recruit.
