GLENN HEIGHTS – The Glenn Heights Police Department recently announced that it will have all of its police officers attend Active Bystander for Law Enforcement training. Adding this training will “help ensure a successful outcome during citizen interactions,” according to a city media release.

The ABLE program was established after years of academic research and real-world experience through the Georgetown Law Center for Innovations in Community Safety and has proven to be a key player in preparing officers to successfully intervene to prevent harm while at the same time allowing for an enforcement culture that supports peer intervention, according to the release.
