To qualify for the bonus of $3,000, an officer must be in good standing with Missouri Peace Officers Standards and Training and with the current law enforcement agency.

The officer must also have at least one year of experience with at least one law enforcement agency and sign a two-year commitment with the Trenton Police Department.
