MCC PD welcomes four new(ish) officers

Booker Armstrong, David Cooper, Joseph Ham and Zach Goode are not new to MCC but as of last night they all have a new title: police officer.
New MCC police officers (l-r) Zach Goode, Joseph Ham, David Cooper and Booker Armstrong were sworn in after the MCC-Blue River Police Academy graduation Wednesday night.

The four former MCC public safety officers graduated from MCC-Blue River's Police Academy alongside 24 other cadets Wednesday night. As required by the State of Missouri, the cadets completed eight months of intense training and passed a rigorous examination in order to become commissioned police officers.

Cooper, who had been lead public safety officer at MCC-Longview, is
now an MCC police officer assigned to Longview. Goode and Ham, who had been public safety officer and lead public safety officer, respectively, at MCC-Penn Valley, are now MCC police officers assigned to Penn Valley. Armstrong, who had been public safety manager at MCC-Blue River, is now MCC campus police captain assigned to Blue River. Each was presented with his commission and shield and sworn in as a campus police officer by Bill Hudson, MCC chief of campus police, immediately following the academy graduation ceremony.
