The commanding officer of Troop B, in Macon, has announced that Troop B will be conducting a two-day Student Alliance Program. The purpose of the program is to provide an opportunity for current high school students to learn more about law enforcement and the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

The 2019 Troop B Student Alliance Program will be conducted on two consecutive Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., beginning on March 2, 2019, at the Troop B Headquarters in Macon, Missouri.

During the program, students will participate in a variety of educational activities intended to familiarize them with Highway Patrol operations and equipment. Some of the activities will include DWI enforcement, firearms, traffic safety, marine operations, stop and approach, and crime scene investigation.
