EVERYTHING YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT POLICE WORK, BUT DIDN'T KNOW ENOUGH TO ASK
O’Fallon Chief of Police Roy Joachimstaler has served more than 40 years as a police officer in every capacity from inner city beat cop to Chief of Police in the suburbs. As Commander of the Vice-Narcotics Division, he was responsible for enforcing all vice and narcotics laws within the City of St. Louis. He commanded the Bureau of Patrol Support (Mobile Reserve Unit, Canine, Traffic Safety, Mounted Patrol, Hostage Response Unit, Public Transportation, and Operational Planning). He served as Chief of Detectives in charge of the Bureau of Criminal Investigations. In short, the breath and depth of his vast experience is simply unsurpassed. He is an excellent presenter who can speak to any phase of police work you could name. --more--
About Chapter Meetings
Our meetings feature guest speakers who provide information on interesting topics. On those evenings where there is not a guest speaker or where the speaker finishes early, we have open readings, discussions on writing issues, networking, or a book discussion. Past meetings have included presentations on marketing, how to conduct interviews, K-9 police, the world of indie publishing, and more.
We hope to see everyone at our Upcoming 2015 meetings. Unless otherwise noted on the website, our meetings are held
