The Community Alliance Program will begin on Monday, September 13, 2021, and will be hosted at the Hannibal Career and Technical Center in Hannibal.

Participants will also participate in a ride-along with a trooper during the program. The program will culminate with an awards ceremony held at and sponsored by the Missouri State Highway Patrol’s CDL Supersite, 4725 Ready Mix Road, Hannibal, MO 63401.
The class size will be limited to 18 people and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis following a criminal record check.
