City of Lenoir Police Department policies and procedures related to the #8CANTWAIT campaign.
Citizen’s Canine Academy
The Lenoir Police Department hosts a “Citizen’s Canine Academy” each year. K-9 Officers from within the department instruct citizens on basic obedience exercises with their pets. This training provides owners a chance to conduct “hands on” training with pets to improve obedience issues.
Citizen's Police Academy
Learn more about the Police department by taking part of our Citizen's Police Academy.
The program involves a special 4-week period in late winter in which hunting is allowed inside participating municipalities' corporate limits. The purpose of the program is to reduce urban deer populations, which often pose a threat to public safety.
The Lenoir Police Department is home to Explorer Post 246, sponsored through the Boy Scouts of America. The purpose of the program is to introduce young adults age 14 to 20 to various aspects of law enforcement and to familiarize them with methods and attitudes of policing. Not all Law Enforcement Explorers are interested in law enforcement as a career, but the training they receive in leadership and responsibility will help prepare them for any profession.
False Alarm Reduction Program
This is a voluntary alarm registration program that accomplishes several goals. The first is to obtain and keep on file current key holder information for alarm locations. The second is to reduce the amount of time officers spend on repeat false alarms. By reducing false alarm calls, we can be more efficient in responding to actual in-progress community concerns.
The D.A.R.E. Program (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) of the Lenoir Police Department completed its 31st year in 2021. The D.A.R.E. Curriculum is currently implemented at all city elementary schools and at William Lenoir Middle School and are taught by our agency's Community Resource Officer and School Resource Officers.
