The Lebanon Police Department offers a challenging patrol area with a resident population of approximately 13,500.  During the daytime, the population increases to approximately 35,000 due to the local economic and social activity of the area. We cover this area with 33 sworn officers and a total Police Department staff of approximately 50 people. We are very active and enjoy the support of the residents of the City of Lebanon.

The Lebanon area offers the best of northern New England and is located adjacent to the crossroads of I-89 and I-91 with I-89 running through the middle of the City. Lebanon Police Officers can live in the City or within 45 minutes of the station.

The City provides comprehensive equipment issue and replacement including ballistic vests, which have a regular replacement schedule. In order to maintain a professional appearance, the City provides cleaning for all uniforms, as well as replacing requested uniform parts, when they first show signs of wear.

Our patrol cars are very well equipped and maintained.  Our cruisers are equipped with in car video systems and use MDTs (Mobile Data Terminals)  to write reports, check licenses and registrations, view suspect photos, and check for wanted and missing persons.  We have Livescan, an automated finger print identification system, which electronically scans fingerprints and gives immediate results for record and identity checks. We also provide our Officers with the best use of force options and tools needed to effectively handle complex situations.

We have several specialty assignments for Officers who have performed well; a  K-9 Unit with three teams, full time School Resource Officer assigned to the School District, a SWAT trained Tactical and Containment Team, Field Training Officer Program, Accident Reconstruction Team along with Firearms and Use of Force Instruction Programs. In addition, officers may work toward assignments within the Detective and Training Divisions along with promotional opportunities.  All patrol personnel maintain certification with police baton, OC spray, less lethal shotgun, pepperball projectile system, pistol, shotgun, and police semi-auto rifle with our own instructors maintaining these certifications internally.


As members of the Lebanon Police Department, we pride ourselves on promoting and delivering a safe environment in the heart of the Upper Valley.
We strive to be a respected and integral cornerstone of the community by forming partnerships to resolve problems with the changing needs of the City.
We will provide skilled, efficient, and flexible law enforcement services to our citizens.
