Troop C To Host Community Alliance Program
Lieutenant Kevin W. Malugen, commanding officer of Troop C, Weldon Spring, MO, announces
Troop C is seeking individuals who are interested in attending a Community Alliance Program.
The Community Alliance Program will begin on Thursday October 12, 2023, and will be hosted at the Troop C Headquarters in Weldon Spring. 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 six consecutive Thursday evenings from 6 - 8:30 p.m. Classroom and practical instruction will cover various topics, including firearms, traffic stops, traffic crash and criminal investigations, and polygraph examinations, and discuss the many different divisions that make up this great agency. Participants will participate in a ride-along with a trooper during the program. The program will culminate with an awards ceremony held at the Troop C Headquarters on Thursday November 16, 2023.
The class size will be limited to 15 people and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis following a criminal record check. Anyone interested in, or seeking further information about, the program is encouraged to contact Corporal Dallas Thompson at (636) 300-2800 ext. 3340. The public can apply to attend the program by going to the Missouri State Highway Patrol’s webpage
