Chief Doug Roberts has been very active in the South Central CIT since he came to the Missouri S&T University Police Department. Chief Roberts is one of the first officers to assist The Rolla Mission when there is an individual in crisis. Chief Roberts also assists the Rolla Police Department on a regular basis to make sure the community is safe. Chief Roberts assists individuals personally to make sure that they get to the hospital or to counseling when they are in crisis. Chief Roberts make sure that his officers wellbeing is always taken care of and Chief Roberts also takes a personal interest in making sure that area homeless population is always taken care of. There was one situation in particular that I remember, where he had found out that someone with dementia had been dropped off at a homeless shelter with nothing but the clothes he was wearing, (his family would not take care of him). Chief Roberts took special care of this man and even took him shopping for Christmas. I still remember how the gentleman’s face lit up when he showed me his new boots and pants. Chief Robert is an asset to our team.
