In an effort to provide the citizens of Kansas a better understanding of their highway patrol, the Kansas Highway Patrol is conducting “town hall” meetings across the state.
During these meetings, KHP will present an overview of their operations within the organization and how these operations tie into the agency’s mission and goals.
Patrol officials will be talking about the agency’s lack of manpower and noncompetitive salaries for troopers and how both are affecting local law enforcement and service to the public.
Topics of local interest will also be discussed in an effort to foster feedback from the audience.
Locally, the KHP has scheduled a meeting for 4 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 4 in the McPherson Middle School. The meeting is expected to last about 60 minutes.
