Chatham County police officers are undergoing training that will help them better react when they see a fellow officer violating department policies.
The Peer Intervention Program is called “EPCI,” or “ethical policing is courageous,”
and was developed by the New Orleans Police Department.
The program is designed to stop police misconduct before it begins by training the officers to recognize when a situation calls for them to step in and stop it.
“The training is with all ranks from myself all the way down to patrol officers,” Chatham County police Chief Jeff Hadley said. “You have a wide range of experience in that room where you’re talking about these very important steps and i just thought it was an excellent program.”
Every Chatham County police officer is scheduled to complete the training by the end of November.
