Promoting Lean

https://prd.blogs.nh.gov/das/NHLEAN/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/IMG_0293-300x225.jpg

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.
