Lieutenant Edward N. Moses, Q/TND

The MASTERS Public Service Award was created to recognize the importance of public service.  This award honors a member whose actions strengthen the Patrol's motto of "Service and Protection".  This years' recipient is Lieutenant Edward N. Moses.

Lieutenant Moses has served the people of Missouri for over 33 years as a member of the Patrol.  He has been assigned as a road officer, an undercover narcotics officer, a drug information officer and an Academy instructor.  Currently, Lieutenant Moses is an assistant director in the Training Division.  Since 1977, he has lectured and taught the history, trends, and consequences of drug abuse.  Lieutenant Moses has been the driving force behind the state's Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program.  Currently, he serves as the administrator of the D.A.R.E. State Training Center.  Lieutenant Moses is nationally certified as a drug recognition expert by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and oversees the Patrol's drug recognition expert program.  He was the original coordinator of the Patrol's Chaplaincy program.  Under his supervision, the program expanded to include all nine troops and General Headquarters, providing a valuable service to Patrol employees and their communities.  Lieutenant Moses is a charter board member of the National Federation of Parents, cofounder and past president of the Missouri Federation of Parents, and a board member and past chairperson of Jefferson City's Council for Drug Free Youth.  His dedication to drug prevention efforts in Missouri is without equal.  Through his efforts, a coalition of nearly 300 law enforcement agencies provide drug prevention education to over 100,000 students in 102 Missouri counties.  Missouri's D.A.R.E. program is a model for state programs nationwide.

It is he feeling of the board of The MASTERS that Lieutenant Edward N. Moses embodies what this Public Service Award represents.  His actions are a credit to him and to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
