Today the FBPD started training our officers on the ABLE process – Active Bystandership for Law Enforcement. The program is a project of Georgetown Law and provides officers with the skills to intervene if they believe a peer is veering off course in a situation, whether it be the improper use of force or another decision that could have negative consequences.
Once the training is complete, every member of the FBPD from officer to chief will have learned the concepts of ABLE. For more information on ABLE please visit https://www.law.georgetown.edu/cics/able/
