NSCC Purchases Patrol Vehicle from Whitehouse Police Department

Northwest State recently purchased a pre-owned patrol vehicle from the Whitehouse Police Department for use in the Law Enforcement Academy program. The purchase, a vehicle previously used by reserve officers, is the latest instance of a positive, long-standing working relationship between the Whitehouse P.D. and Northwest State.

Whitehouse Patrol Car Purchse“Chief Mark McDonough has generously supported the Law Enforcement Academy program at Northwest State. He has been an instructor here, he has provided valuable externship opportunities for cadets, and again today has helped secure a vehicle for training,” said Lori Robison, associate vice president for academics at NSCC. “The program now has two vehicles to help prepare today’s cadets to become tomorrow’s patrol officers throughout the region,” continued Robison.

Robison also noted that NSCC has relied on the generosity of local departments to loan the College vehicles for training. “The vehicles give us the tools to better train our cadets for vehicle patrol, traffic enforcement, stops and approaches, as well as driving techniques,” concluded Robison.
