Independent Stave Company in Lebanon, Missouri donated a turkey to every staff member of the Lebanon Police Department this year. They do so every year for Thanksgiving and at Christmas they donate each employee a holiday ham. President Jon Rigsby of I.U.P.A. Local Lebanon Police Officers Association shared that in his twenty years with the department, that Independent Stave Company has kindly and generously given those donations to police department staff and to other city employees for every Thanksgiving and Christmas he can remember.


Each week, the I.U.P.A. Briefing Room features a photo that exemplifies the valuable part of the community that our Law Enforcement Officers all across the U.S. are and their positive impact as well as their dedication, service, and sacrifice.
