A program headed to the Lake Area could potentially save area law enforcement thousands of dollars each year. Missouri State University is working with the City of Camdenton to utilize the old Camdenton Fire Station to train officers. Lake Ozark Chief Gary Launderville says he spends hundreds of dollars per officer every time they have to be sent somewhere for training. The state requires officers to go through a minimum of 24 hours of POST training every year and Chief Launderville believes it will be cheaper for his department and better for the entire Lake Area if the training is done nearby. The Board of Aldermen gave initial approval to the idea of using the MSU facility during their meeting Tuesday night. They will now read over the proposal a second time at their next meeting.
