Rolla business donates mobile home to RPD Range

Michele Broxton, Operations Leader for Huffman Mobile Home Superstore in Rolla, Mo. recently donated a mobile home to the Rolla Police Department which will be used for  S.W.A.T. and shift training at the RPD Range located off Y Highway north of Rolla.
“The Rolla Police Department is very appreciative of this generous donation from Huffman Mobile Home Superstore,” said Police Chief Mark Kearse. “It will allow our department to use the structure for valuable S.W.A.T. and shift training that will be very beneficial.”
