Message from the Chief

Welcome to the Lebanon Police Department website. I hope our site will give you a thorough overview of our police department and the services that we provide to the community at large. We believe in strong partnership and connection with our residents, business owners, and community members and we work hard each and every day to strengthen those relationships. The Lebanon Police Department is also committed to a progressive and problem-oriented approach to 21st Century Policing. Our officers are problem solvers and consistently look to think "outside the box" in solving problems within our community. This approach relies heavily on interaction and collaboration with everyone in our community, so I encourage input, feedback and community involvement. 

My goal as Chief of Police, and the goal of the Lebanon Police Department, is to provide a personal, professional service to those that we are committed to serving and protecting so that, together, we can maintain a quality of life within the City that we all expect and deserve. I always welcome and invite any suggestions and recommendations on how we can continue to make the City of Lebanon a great place to live, work and play.

Sincerely,
Richard R. Mello
Chief of Police
