Troop G Conducts Eighth Community Alliance Program
Captain Mark G. Inman, commanding officer, Missouri State Highway Patrol, Troop G, Willow Springs, Missouri, announces the Patrol will be conducting a Community Alliance Program beginning Tuesday, October 4, 2016, and concluding with an awards ceremony on Tuesday, November 1, 2016. The mission of the Community Alliance Program is to provide personal interaction between the community and the Patrol. The program is designed for those possessing a strong interest in learning about the Patrol’s purpose and role within the law enforcement community. The Highway Patrol is seeking up to 20 responsible citizens, community leaders, and professional and business associates who are willing to commit to a program that provides a unique opportunity.
Classes will meet from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on each of five consecutive Tuesday evenings, in the meeting room at Troop G Headquarters in Willow Springs. Successful completion of the program will require attendance at each Tuesday evening session. (One absence will be allowed with prior approval from the program coordinator.) The curriculum will familiarize participants with many Patrol policies and procedures utilizing teaching techniques similar to those experienced by troopers attending the Missouri State Highway Patrol Academy in Jefferson City. Many evenings will include activities and role-playing exercises that provide participants practical experience. The program will conclude with an awards ceremony at which time awards will be presented to participants who successfully complete the program.
The Patrol is accepting applications for the Community Alliance Program through September 15, 2016. There is no cost to participate in the program. Selection of up to 20 participants will be based upon an evaluation of an application form and a criminal record check. Application forms are available by calling Troop G Headquarters at (417) 469-3121.
