Governor Stitt Applauds OHP for Completing Mission S.O.S. Training
Governor Kevin Stitt applauded the Oklahoma Highway Patrol today for complying with Executive Order 2022-13, also known as Mission: S.O.S. (Secure Oklahoma Schools). As of today, all State Troopers have now been trained in a DPS-approved and CLEET-certified Law Enforcement Active Shooter Response System (LASER).
“I am proud of all of our Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers and grateful for state law enforcement’s commitment to keeping schools safe in Oklahoma,” said Governor Stitt. “When I issued Mission S.O.S. last June, I had full confidence in our ability to work together to get it done and am thrilled with how much we have accomplished in under seven months. We will continue to work to complete Mission S.O.S. entirely and ensure kids are safe at school.”
“We are very proud of the hard work our troopers have put in to meet the deadline set out in the governor’s executive order,” said Department of Public Safety Commissioner Tim Tipton. “They have spent long hours traveling the state making sure everyone is trained and ready to respond to an active shooter situation. While we hope to never have to utilize this training, Oklahoma communities can rest assured we will respond quickly and effectively.”
