A new opportunity has arisen for the Superior Police Department who have been accepted into the "Active Bystandership for Law Enforcement" (ABLE) Project.  

The project was developed by the Georgetown University Law Center and now several members of the Superior Police Department have been trained as instructors.  

Sergeant Matthew Brown laid out the basics of what the program teaches.

“It's a series of tactics and skills that allow our officers to recognize and feel comfortable intervening in situations to prevent misconduct and warm from opening to both our officers and members of the public,” explained Brown.

Over the coming months, all of the department's officers will receive 8 hours of evidence-based active bystandership education.
