SARCC shares our deepest and most heartfelt condolences with the family of William Lebo of the Lebanon City Police Department. Lieutenant Lebo, along with his family, was a longtime supporter of SARCC and our mission and we grieve his passing along with our community. We hold his wife and surviving family members in our hearts and extend warmest wishes for comfort and healing at this time.
Many survivors of sexual violence seek the support of law-enforcement in the aftermath of their experiences. Our staff and the survivors we serve have worked in connection with Officers Lebo, Adams, and Underkoffler over their years of service. We recognize and honor the commitment to justice and healing that it takes for law-enforcement and all first responders to be with people during some of their most difficult times.
We further affirm that violence of any kind has no place in our community. Each act of violence hurts the community as a whole. SARCC reaffirms our commitment to ending violence in this moment and until this vision is realized. In continuing this work, we also wish comfort and healing to the recovering officers, the families affected, and the community with whom we grieve.
