Missouri Highway Patrol Seeking Public Comments on Performance

The Missouri State Highway Patrol wants to hear from the public on how it’s doing as part of a process to maintain agency accreditation. KSMU’s Brittany Donnellan has details.

                The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc. will begin assessing the Highway Patrol’s policies, procedures, management, operation and support services next week. According to a press release from the Highway Patrol, when the agency is accredited, it gives the public more trust. Accreditation is a voluntary process and lasts three years. As part of the process, the public is invited to offer comments about the Highway Patrol’s performance.

                On Monday, August 27th, people can call the Commission toll-free to give their comments from 2-5 by calling (877) 545-5511. You can also mail-in written remarks to the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc. Comments must relate to the Highway Patrol’s ability to meet the standards set by the Commission. You can find a summary of these standards by visiting the Patrol’s Research and Development Division in Jefferson City or by contacting Sergeant William Lowry at (573) 751-8444.

                For information about submitting comments to the assessment team, you can visit our website.
