The Marysville Police Department is thrilled to announce significant progress in our commitment to enhancing law enforcement practices and promoting officer well-being.
Through the prestigious Active Bystandership for Law Enforcement (ABLE) project, a national training and support initiative aimed at fostering a culture of peer intervention. To date, 80% of MPD officers have completed the ABLE training, demonstrating the department's unwavering commitment to proactive and responsible policing. The journey towards excellence continues, with more officers slated to undergo the training by the end of the year.
ABLE, founded by Georgetown Law, provides comprehensive training and guidance to law enforcement agencies across the United States. The program educates officers on effective intervention techniques, empowering them to prevent harm and uphold the values of justice and safety within the community. By fostering a supportive environment that encourages active bystandership, our department aims to further strengthen trust and cooperation between law enforcement officers and the community they serve.
"We are immensely proud of the dedication shown by our officers in embracing the ABLE training," said Chief Erik Scairpon of the Marysville Police Department. "This initiative aligns with our core values of integrity, accountability and community engagement. Through ABLE, we are equipping our officers with essential skills to uphold the highest standards of professionalism and safety."
