Getting to know you…the Missouri State Highway Patrol is seeking a few good men, and women, for its Community Alliance Program which is set to begin later this month.

Corporal Kyle Geen says the five-week program, starting on the 26th, is an opportunity to gain insight and understanding of the training and duties of the patrol, as well as interacting with troopers and civilian employees of the patrol.

Several topics are covered during the program including: traffic stops and traffic crashes, criminal investigations and bomb squad equipment.

Participants will also get a chance to do a ride-a-long.

The Community Alliance Program will come to an end with an awards ceremony at the highway patrol’s academy in Jefferson City.

The class is limited to 20 people…first come, first serve…by getting in contact with the patrol.
