A highway patrol is either a police unit created primarily for the purpose of overseeing and enforcing traffic safety compliance on roads and highways, or a detail within an existing local or regional police agency that is primarily concerned with such duties.

Police allege that on Friday evening the suspects unlawfully entered a property outside of Dubbo where they stole a Toyota Hilux to use for their evening’s activities. By Saturday morning the suspects were in Nyngan where Police observed them on Pangee St. Lights and sirens resulted in the vehicle accelerating harshly, driving out of town at high speed with Police in pursuit. Unable to shake the Highway Patrol car, the suspect vehicle went off road, ramming through farm gates and crossing various properties. The suspects made their way back on to the Colane Rd where Police deployed road spikes, causing the rapid deflation of the offending vehicle’s tyres. The vehicle crashed off road and the suspects fled on foot. A Police dog was brought in to assist and the suspects were soon located hiding in thick scrub. The suspects were arrested and taken to Nyngan ...

So, Guys, did you stay up late watching the tube? If so, what did you watch. I am excited to hear what entertained you after hours. :D
It is with a heavy heart that Sheriff Eddie Cathey announces the death of Sergeant Jeffrey Wayne Greene this morning. Sergeant Greene died from injuries sustained in a motor vehicle crash involving a tractor trailer truck at the intersection of Sutherland Avenue and U.S. Highway 74 just after 7:00 am this morning. Sheriff Cathey also wishes to gratefully acknowledge the Monroe Police Department, the Monroe Fire Department, Union EMS, the N.C. Highway Patrol, and the many local, state and federal law enforcement partners, elected officials and private citizens who have extended messages of condolence and concern to both the Greene family and to this agency. Any loss in the public safety community touches us all, and the expressions of care and support we have received today have affected us all very deeply. Funeral arrangements will be announced when they are complete, but Sheriff Cathey requests that everyone keep the Greene family in their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time

The First I was arrested and put in Jail by Carl ToersBijns - Driving fast was always my need for speed disability, affliction or additiction. I never knew when to keep the foot out of the carburetor and slow down to the posted speeds but we all change as we learn the hard way not to drive your car faster than what the law allows. My buddy Sean was a risk taker and a lady’s man as he showed off his Elvis like hair style to the girls on the base and anytime the opportunity gave him a chance to flirt and date total strangers we met in the bars. I was married but he was single so it was an odd couple and the rules were different from him and me. I had to make sure I had a ride back to the base so I hung out with him as much as I could. Most of Jefferson County was dry so we had to look far to find a bar that served us GI’s and where the price was not too steep even back when everything was so much more cheaper than before. Having a car was a bonus and we took advantage of that every weekend when we did n ...
Greetings group I drive a tractor and trailer locally here in southern and central California. I just want to point out a few things that we have to deal with on a daily basis.

A jack knife, that trailers going to take out whoever's next to me. Our trucks have qualcom. Everything about the truck, issues, location, speed, engine speed, etc. they can see an the main office in Wisconsin. I get a call from our safety dept every couple weeks about a hard braking event.

Two Ste. Gen residents charged with heroin possession By Don Pritchard, Sun Times News Online STE. GENEVIEVE – Ste. Genevieve police have made two recent arrests for heroin possession. The police department reported Friday one of the suspects is a 23-year-old white female from Perryville and the other is a 30-year-old white male from Ste. Genevieve. They were arrested separately on September 6th and 7th. The Ste. Genevieve County Prosecuting Attorney’s office said a warrant has been issued for the man and identified him as 30-year-old William Joseph Hutson. He was being held on a $25,000 bond. Hutson is also charged with unlawful use of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana, resisting arrest by fleeing. Police say Hutson was observed driving a blue Mercury on Market Street past the city maintenance shed at a speed of 46 miles an hour in the 25 mile an hour zone. A police officer gave chase and followed the suspect to a residence on North Eighth Street. A consent search of the residence turned u ...

These court fines for traffic are getting carried away. My daughter received a fix it ticket she didn't have the registration in the car or at least she couldn't find where she put it. The car was up to date on the registration and the Highway patrol could have ran the license plate and it would have shown the registration was up to date and who owned the car. Any way they gave her a fix it ticket and she went and got it signed off. The problem was because she forgot to mail it in. She went to court and showed the court when it was signed off and was charged $800.00 fine for not mailing the ticket in. Just a little how for really not breaking any law except couldn't find the up to date registration and forgot to mail in the fix ticket.

African American Doctor in Criminology and Criminal Justice, Picked for Top Law Enforcement Post in Missouri By JOHN ELIGON AUG. 27, 2014 BERKELEY, Mo. — Gov. Jay Nixon on Wednesday nominated a former St. Louis police chief to become the state’s top law enforcement official — and the only African-American in his cabinet — in the wake of racially charged unrest in nearby Ferguson. The nomination of Daniel Isom II to become the director of the state’s Department of Public Safety came the same day that a police command center in Ferguson was dismantled and the National Guard completed its withdrawal. The Missouri State Highway Patrol and the county police will remain in charge of policing the city of 21,000 that became the site of violent clashes between the police and protesters after Darren Wilson, a white Ferguson police officer, shot and killed Michael Brown, 18, who was black and unarmed, two and a half weeks ago. If Dr. Isom is confirmed by the State Senate, he will oversee the Highway Patrol ...

A teenager has had his driver’s licence suspended and will have to pay over $2 200 in fines after allegedly exceeding the signed speed limit by more than 60km/h in North Sydney today. Just after 5am (Thursday 21 August 2014), officers attached to Harbourside Traffic and Highway Patrol were conducting speed enforcement duties as part of Operation Saturation on the Warringah Freeway in North Sydney. Police allegedly detected a Toyota Kluger travelling north at 146km/h in an 80km/h signed area. The 19-year-old driver was stopped and spoken to by police, who suspended his licence for six months on the spot. The teen was later issued a traffic infringement notice for exceeding the speed limit over 45km/h and was issued a fine of $2,252. Traffic and Highway Patrol Acting Assistant Commissioner, Bob Ryan, said, “This is a costly lesson for the teenager, however he is lucky he got away with his licence suspended and a fine,” A/Assistant Commissioner Ryan said. “Police will continue to target drivers actin ...

My experiences here trump anything I've experienced over there." "I was in a meeting with some of the citizens, and a woman stood up and said her child asked her, 'Mom, if they're killing people like me, when I'm next?'" "I want to make it clear: The police are not the real issue. They're just following orders based on the narrative they're given. The real issue is those in power. The Police Chief. The Highway Patrol Captain. The Governor: those are the ones who are responsible for what's happening to this city." "Last night's escalation was a set-up to distract from the autopsy report that was coming out this morning. It was a total set up. Our protest march was totally within the prescribed rules. It was entirely peaceful." When I asked her wha ...

Update on Fast-burning fire in Oakhurst Just before 2 p.m. this afternoon, fire crews responded to a fire located behind the Oakhurst Sears store, off Highway 49. Firefighters fought the fire - named the Junction Fire — from the top of 425A and from the Highway 49 location.

FERGUSON, Mo. -- Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon ordered the National Guard to Ferguson early Monday, hours after police used tear gas to clear protesters off the streets following a week of demonstrations against the fatal police shooting of a black Missouri teenager. In a statement, Nixon said the National Guard would help "in restoring peace and order" to the St. Louis suburb that has been filled almost nightly with angry, defiant crowds since 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed Aug. 9. "These violent acts are a disservice to the family of Michael Brown and his memory and to the people of this community who yearn for justice to be served and to feel safe in their own homes," Nixon said. The latest confrontations came the same day Attorney General Eric Holder ordered a federal medical examiner to perform a third autopsy on Brown. A preliminary private autopsy found the unarmed teen was shot at least six times, including twice in the head. Results of a state-performed autopsy have not been released. As night fe ...
There has been a tremendous outpouring of generosity thanks to the work of Rita Younger. There are donations in need of transport from the fire house on Gregory in Fenton to St. Louis County precincts and/or the Jennings substation or a local highway patrol substation. Several people (pick up trucks useful) are needed. If you are able to help with transport please message me and I'll get you in touch with Rita.
Meet Robert P. McCulloch... ("Who the *** is that," you ask?) Mr. McCulloch is the Prosecuting District Attorney of St. Louis County...here's a little background on this one-man clown car: "In the early 90s, McCulloch prosecuted Axl Rose of the band Guns N’ Roses. In 2001, two undercover officers fired 21 shots, killing two unarmed victims. McCulloch elected not to prosecute the shooters, and drew controversy when he said of the victims: 'These guys were bums.'... In the wake of the August 2014 shooting of Michael Brown, McCulloch was critical of Gov. Jay Nixon's decision to replace St. Louis County Police control with Missouri State Highway Patrol. McCulloch is the son of a St. Louis police officer who was killed in the line of duty when McCulloch was twelve years old. "--Wikipedia So.we have a Democrat-in-name-only local *** politician, with an axe to grind against anything besmirching cops, in charge of the investigation in the murder of an unarmed kid by a police officer... Does anyone else see ...
“Life is too short, grudges are a waste of perfect happiness, Laugh when you can, apologize when you should and let go of what you can’t change." Growing up while in junior high and high school I attended the United Methodist Church Camp Epworth Among the Hills in Arcadia, Missouri each summer. My brothers and my son, Brock, all attended the same camp week of Kuehle Camp or Sanctuary Camp each year. Chris Ricks was one of the camp directors there while I attended. He was a Missouri Highway Patrol Trooper in his "real" life. He taught us all a great deal about life and God while we were at camp. He died suddenly today of complications from an earlier routine surgery. My thoughts and prayers go to his family. We just don't know what tomorrow holds so hold tight to your loved ones and live life to the fullest today! Make sure you are doing what you love!
To the head of the Missouri State Highway Patrol: you blew it
HIGHWAY patrol officers could soon look like a modern version of Mad Max — roaming our roads in Ford Mustangs.

Our own George Erik Erastus is very thankful for God protecting him and his family as a wheel fell off his truck tonight, and also to local law enforcement for calming his kids down within seconds of their arrival. This is Trooper J.J. Smith of the Wapakoneta Highway Patrol Post. Lesson learned: nothing in life is guaranteed. Hug your loved ones an extra time and tell them you love them. God bless you all in Erastus-Land.
Happy Monday, summer is flying by. The news agenda for the week has two hopeful stories: the slight lessening of tensions in Ukraine, and the glorious impact of U.S. airstrikes in Iraq, which have apparently resulted in the liberation of the crucial Mosul Dam. Better late, than never in terms of the Obama Administration doing something about the ISIS invasion of Iraq. Less hopeful, but at least better news than it has been in recent weeks, the ceasefire is holding in Gaza, (although it is just a matter of time before that volatile situation sadly re-ignites). And speaking of igniting, the big story remains the chaos in Ferguson Missouri. After the Brown family, the person I feel sorriest for today is Missouri State Highway Patrol Captain Ronald Johnson. To watch this noble civil servant addressing the grieving family and stricken community Sunday was heart-warming and heart-wrenching. Here he was, speaking as a parent and a neighbor, a black police commander expressing his utter sorrow for the death of 18 ...
That highway patrol captain is worthless. He obviously forgot that he is a law enforcement officer and is to enforce the law NOT hug protesters, rioters, and law breakers and NOT be biased which he is. Missouri, you need to pull this morons badge immediately.
Rant: Ferguson Mo. Here is my prediction. Since Obama has sent 20 FBI agents to investigate this and there has been 3 autopsies, I predict the officer will be found innocent in state court and then found guilty of violating the dopers civil rights. I guarantee you that those agents were hand picked and told to find something on the officer or your career is done, *** make something up. If I was the governor I would tell the FBI butt out. The HIghway Patrol will take over. This is all being stirred by the Manchurian candidate, the most racist person alive in America. He will continue to stir these things up until he can declare martial law and dismiss the senate and house. Sound like Hitler, well maybe. Hitler was rightfully elected and pushed the rest of the government out leaving him solely in charge. If you are not a prepper, you better start, because things could get mighty hard for people who disagree with the Manchurian Candidate.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol will be conducting OVI checkpoints in Hamilton and Summit counties this week.
I wonder if the phrase "To Protect and Serve" sounds even VAGUELY familiar to the National Guard or the Missouri Highway Patrol at all at this point. Take your gas masks off and put your effing guns down you cowards
Mmm gotta bring out the National Guard,police,sheriffs officers and highway patrol to protect the citizens and property of an American city ? Is this a terrorist attack? Wouldn't deadly force be appropriate ?
Okay they need to know Ron Johnson can't take care of them forever, if so Missouri Highway Patrol needs to tell him to get off the fence! Ron Johnson has a job to do!!! I really wish the police and the National Gaurd/Army would. This was said by a protester ..Throwing a water bottle isn't hurting the police.GEEZ ARE YOU SERIOUS I'm glad I'm not police! And a American Flag Hung upside down.WHAT. This is getting stupid!
Larry On august 9 2014 there was a tragic killing in Ferguson Missouri. An 18 year old black man shot by a white police officer. Since that Saturday in August, the world attention has been on this suburban community of 21,000. Missouri is my home. I have lived here most of my life. Missouri is a diverse state - You can find just about any American culture somewhere in Missouri. The good, the bad, the ugly, the poor, the 1% rich. Missouri is a bellwhether state for good reason. This week the events unfolding in Ferguson Missouri is somewhat akin to taking America's pulse. This message is about politics, economics and culture. My goal is to put some perspective on the events in Ferguson and share what I think we can do about it. During the Clinton years, welfare reform was enacted. Our economy grew due to the dotcom growth and a general feeling of confidence by most Americans. Many families improved their plot in life. The middle class grew and prospered. Bill Clinton was right. "It' ...
I've been quiet about the Ferguson situation, mostly due to watching closely. It seems a lot of people are interested but uninformed, so here's a timeline. This is the most important thing happening in America right now. CAUTION: Long political post! August 9 - Teenager Mike Brown and a friend are walking home and are stopped by a police officer. SOMETHING happens, numerous gunshots are reported, Brown dies. Eyewitness accounts say there was no confrontation, no scuffle, and even report that a nurse who witnessed it was not allowed to give Brown CPR/aid as he was dying. Mike Brown is black, as are about 80% of Ferguson's residents - yet the mayor, school board, city council, and nearly the entire police force(including the officer involved in this) are white. August 10 - The Ferguson police release a statement claiming there was a struggle between the officer and Mike Brown precipitated by Brown assaulting the police officer. A candlelight vigil for Brown turns into a heated protest and there are scattere ...
Who knows what time MVI class starts at the highway patrol in lees summit? 8am?
I want to be clear: If Mr. Michael Brown charged the Ferguson police officer that officer had every right to defend himself, up to and including deadly force. MY concern with situation is how it has been handled by law enforcement SINCE the fatal shot was fired. The Ferguson PD, St. Louis County PD, and Missouri Highway Patrol have been 100% opaque on this situation. When an agent of the government commits a homicide the public MUST get ALL of the information AS SOON AS THAT INFORMATION IS DISCOVERED. I personally will never know whether or not the Ferguson officer was justified in shooting Mr. Brown. What I DO know for a true fact: the military response of law enforcement, decking themselves out for warfare, hiding facts, refusing to release what is public information, and violating the civil rights of everyone in the City of Ferguson; it seems like police are baiting the crowds. How do people this stupid get to be in charge of police departments?
They want a war and the National Guard and Highway Patrol are more than capable of delivering one. It's their funeral and dead liers burn in *** same as a live lier. Only one gets there first!
Here is something we can all agree on for a change. Let's get our police forces demilitarized this year. We should lobby our reps to remove military equipment from our Peace officers who are hired to "PROTECT and SERVE;" not "Search and Destroy!" For example: How are we being served by a Utah Highway Patrol (Traffic cops) armed with MRAP. (mine-resistant ambush protected vehicle) Utah police received multiple MRAPs, four grenade launchers, 1,230 rifles etc ... These weapons, equipment, and tactics transform our PEACE OFFICERS into SOLDIERS. The SOLDIER mindset in the mind of our PUBLIC SERVANTS, transforms us into their enemies. As the law of instrument teaches us: If the only tool you have is a hammer, it may make sense to treat everything as if it were a nail.

That was the greatest display of humanity I have ever witnessed in my life. We drove down W. Florissant to go to the QT, parked off of Highmont and as we hit W. Florissant on foot, here came a march of hundreds of people, so we walked with them all the way up to Chambers and then down a few blocks to this church where they were passing out refreshments for kids. We walked back to our car to grab our drinks we brought, then walked down to QT. There were a few St. Louis City cops walking around on foot talking to everybody and being super super cool. There were no cop cars anywhere. Tons of media. Cars nonstop rolling through honking with people hanging out windows and sitting on roofs and everybody chanting and cheering. Nothing but props for the Panthers who were taking care of business keeping order and directing traffic. At one point a County SUV came up the street with berries on, followed by a Highway Patrol car, they got to where the Panthers were and the crowd closed in and they couldn't driv ...
Lord, thank you... The governor has put the captain of missouri's highway patrol in charge in ferguson. They too came to the realization the community was just exercise their 1st amendment right and the aggressive police present was totally unnessacary. Their aggressive present only added to and already frustrating and unfortunate situation!
Whoa! What just happened in Furgeson, Missouri!? Nothing lol. The highway patrol took over security from the local police force and they aren't wearing riot gear, riding in armored vehicles, and none are using SBR ar-15s and no one, I REPEAT NO ONE is rioting as of right now. After three or four crazy nights of rioting it stopped because unlike the local police force, the highway patrol is going for the trust of the people instead of don the look of a military force there to control the population. Way to go Missouri Highway Patrol I applaud you!
Stunning reversal in Ferguson, Missouri. Last night it was rubber bullets, tear gas and snipers. Tonight it was calmness, safety and hugs - more like a parade than a protest. The only difference? NO COPS. The overreacting rogue police department with their war toys was removed from the situation and the state highway patrol stepped in to aid, escort and protect the protesters just like it should be done with their honorable captain actually on foot and leading the march. This is what happens when you treat people with dignity and respect and uphold their civil liberties. Peace baby, it's the only way.
Let's stop talking about a race war etc. We are better than that. I think that the Governor of Missouri acted responsibly in taking away the Ferguson police's power and by putting a captain of the highway patrol / state police in charge. It's not fair to assume that he chose this man just because he is black. I think he was chosen because he was the best man for the job. Let's not act like we want this to spiral into chaos. We want to make things right and engender healing. Salute Captain Johnson and the Governor of Missouri. They just did something right that many states might not do. Angel Scott considering that you are from St. Louis I would love to hear your thoughts on this,
FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri Highway Patrol seized control of a St. Louis suburb Thursday, stripping local police of their law-enforcement authority after four days of clashes between officers in riot gear and furious crowds protesting the death of an unarmed black teen shot by an officer.
This picture is a bit misleading though. He isn't the commander of the Ferguson police, but he is from the Highway Patrol and has taken over the command of their units. its really amazing how peaceful the crowd is in ferguson now that the occupation of the city by the st Louis co military commandoes have been relieved of their duty. its about time that cooler heads prevail.
Thursday afternoon in MO Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson (and officers without SWAT gear), “I understand the anger and fear the residents of Ferguson are feeling, and our police officers will respect both of them.” The crowd is listens and cheers. He then lead protesters on a march through Ferguson.
From Justin- "We have a group from our area comprised of City PD, County Sheriff, State Highway Patrol, and Fire/EMS that have our own Crossfit setup at our FD. Today was a nice little outside WOD with three of us representing PD, SO, and OSP. Red shirt is Tim S (Sgt with the County). Grey shirt is Justin R (Trooper), Orange is Justin E (Patrolman)"

Missouri Highway Patrol takes over policing of Ferguson
The captain of the Missouri Highway Patrol, who is now in charge of Ferguson’s security, sends a hopeful message to the city.
The Missouri Highway Patrol is doing what the STL County police should have done all along: communicate with and lead the way for protesters. It helps that the chief is from North St. Louis. Leaders need to relate to their community. Change may come after all.
Thank you for the highway patrol in a peaceful protest
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon on Thursday named an African-American state Highway Patrol captain to oversee security in Ferguson, after scathing criticism of the local police department's handling of protests over an officer's fatal shooting of a black teenager.
Tough situation in Ferguson all around. But, the difference between the images we saw from Ferguson yesterday (with the SWAT teams/tear gas/rubber bullets/journalists getting tear-gassed & arrested) to the images today (protestors shaking hands and hugging highway patrol capt Ron Johnson) is a case study in the right way & wrong way to deal with a situation-even a terrible, violent situation-and should serve as a reminder to people who think only way to deal with violence is with a bigger, more violent response.
Let me just say I was proud to be part of the protestors today - The Highway Patrol was walking with the crowd talking to folk and taking selfies - cause if it is approached right anything can be accomplished. I met the most wonderful elderly lady who talked my ear off about how pleased she was to see the police intermingling with the protestors!!! This lady was feisty and told me she had been on the front line since Tuesday.I was proud - the young folk spoke passionately about what is going on and encouraged their peers to join in.We stood together peacefully today - and I was proud!!!
