On Thursday June 7, 2018 Colonel Christopher Wagner, Lt. Jeff Ladieu and Sgt. Thomas Lencki spoke about Lean and the State Police on the NH Today with Jack Heath Radio Show. Every Thursday the State Police conducts a segment on the NH Today with Jack Heath, that highlights the men and women of the State Police. Jack Heath had never heard about Lean and how successful it has been for the State Police and Department of Safety. The segment was very informative and as the group was leaving the studio, a listener commented that she had adopted a Lean way of thinking many years ago and she was excited that the State Police had also adopted a Lean way of thinking.

New Hampshire State Police and Lean

Posted by Tom Lencki on June 7th, 2018

Sgt. Thomas Lencki has been working on creating a positive Lean Culture in the NH State Police, for his Lean Black Belt Project. One goal was to offer basic training to all State Police employees.  The NH State Police has 566 employees (Civilian and Troopers) and  463 of them have received training and their certificate in Lean White Belt in 2018. Process improvement is used every day at the NH State Police in many different  areas. Lean is not something you do once and forget about it. Lean is a way of life, a way of thinking.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Trooper Joshua Quigley (Troop-B Bedford Barracks) recently gave kudus to Sgt. Lencki and Lean. Trooper Quigley has been identifying  waste and duplication of efforts in his day to day operations. Trooper Quigley has adopted  a Lean way of thinking and continuously looks for ways to eliminate waste. To hear more about the Lean process improvement work, like us up on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/NHStatePolice/ or follow us on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/nhstatepolice/

 All NH State employees are able to complete the free online training with your NH FIRST login at https://intra.lms.nh.gov/learn/nh/course/index.php?categoryid=2

 We hope you join the NH State Police in becoming a change agent as progression starts now!
