(St.Joseph,MO)A local Missouri State Trooper is celebrating a major milestone this month. Sergeant Jake Angle is celebrating his 25th anniversary with the Missouri State Highway Patrol. Angle started with the patrol in 1993, and has served in northwest Missouri throughout his entire career.
After graduating from the law enforcement academy Angle was assigned to cover Atchison and Holt Counties, where he served for three years. Angle then transferred to the Cameron area to cover Caldwell and Clinton counties, where he remained for the next 17 years. In 2014, Angle returned to St.Joseph, to serve as the Public Information Officer (PIO) for Troop H.
Angle said spending time with the community has been the most rewarding part of his 25 years with the patrol.
“It is rewarding to be able to go out there and serve the citizens and help people. I’m going to say the most rewarding part is the people that I’ve met on the job and the relationships, and working side by side with some of the best people in the state,” Angle said.
Angle said he plans to remain in his role as the PIO for Troop H until he reaches retirement.
