Public Affairs Division

Public Affairs

The mission of the Mississippi Highway Patrol Public Affairs Division is to provide the media and general public with current information regarding press releases and safety education programs. Public Affairs Officers are available upon request to discuss numerous topics which include:

  • Impaired Driving
  • Distracted Driving
  • Seatbelt and Child Restraints
  • Motorcycle/ATV Safety
  • School Bus Safety
  • Recruiting

Several safety presentations have received recognition over the years from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Uniformed Safety Education Officers Workshop (USEOW). These programs are targeted at educating children, teenagers and parents and are designed to create a positive relationship between local communities and the agency.
