JEFFERSON CITY – The Missouri State Highway Patrol has added a Blue Alert.

A Blue Alert provides law enforcers with an early warning of threats against police officers and aids in the apprehension of suspects who have killed or seriously injured an officer. The patrol may issue a Blue Alert for reasons such as a law enforcement officer is killed or seriously injured in the line of duty; an officer is missing in connection with official duties; or there is a credible threat to kill or seriously injure a law enforcement officer.
