Troop B Seeking Participants For 15th Community Alliance Program

The Missouri State Highway Patrol is seeking participants for the 15th Community Alliance Program. Captain James E. Wilt, commanding officer of Troop B, Macon, says the program will begin on Monday, September 9, and will be hosted at the Troop B Headquarters in Macon. Captain Wilt says the Community Alliance Program is a unique opportunity for citizens to gain insight and understanding of the training and many duties of the Missouri State Highway Patrol. It offers an opportunity to meet and interact with troopers and civilian employees of the Patrol. During the program, the participants will meet for 10 consecutive Monday evenings. Classroom and practical instruction will cover various topics, including firearms, traffic stops, traffic crash and criminal investigations, polygraph examinations, and driving while intoxicated enforcement. Participants will also participate in a ride-along with a trooper during the program. The program will culminate with an awards ceremony.
