Press Release from the Missouri State Highway Patrol

12 Members Of Missouri State Highway Patrol Graduate From
Northwestern School Of Police Staff & Command

Colonel Ron Replogle, superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol,
would like to publicly congratulate the Northwestern School of Police Staff
& Command (SPSC) Class #317 upon its graduation today, November 18, 2011.
Class #317 included 12 members of the Patrol, and 12 law enforcement
officers representing seven additional agencies.

Northwestern’s School of Police Staff & Command is an intensive 10-week
program that prepares law enforcement managers for senior positions by
uniquely combining academic principles with practical applications. Because
research is a key component of the SPSC, many times a student’s research
project comes directly from a timely and critical issue facing that
specific agency. Course content includes topics in the areas of
understanding management, law enforcement management and its environment,
human resources administration, and skills for planning and analysis.

The 24 graduates and their departments are listed below:
