Mt. Lebanon Police publish policy manual

mlpd logo clear

In October 2020, the Mt. Lebanon Police Department began working with Lexipol, a company of highly regarded national experts that help police departments review and develop policies, with the goal of keeping the public and officers safe. Lexipol’s model combines best practices from around the country with vast knowledge about federal and state requirements to ensure police departments have the most updated information available to guide them in their decision-making. Last year, Lexipol reviewed more than 14,000 pieces of legislation and worked with more than 8,100 public safety agencies.


During our project, a working group including police officers and leadership went through approximately 160 department policies, line by line, to ensure the policy followed best practices and was consistent with how the department should operate. Lexipol also provides the Department with ongoing training to ensure every officer understands each policy, which leads to better decisions and officer accountability.


The result of this work is that the Mt. Lebanon Police Department has an excellent foundation from which to operate.  

The Commission has been engaged, involved and informed during the review and development of these policies and the police department has their full support. These policies hold our officers to exceedingly high standards and the Commissioners are thankful for the months of careful work that went into this effort. 

Finally, this project will continue to evolve as Lexipol keeps us constantly informed of changes to best practices.
