Throughout his 25-year career, Supervisor Roy D. Barton has possessed an outstanding work ethic and positive attitude. In 2012, Supervisor Barton was tasked with several remodeling projects at Troop B Headquarters. One project consisted of converting an outside building into an office for Division of Drug and Crime Control officers assigned to Troop B. The project entailed major construction, including installing a restroom. Supervisor Barton then moved eight offices within Troop B Headquarters. Each move required him to clean, repair, paint, and remodel the spaces. These moves provided space for a conference room within Troop B Headquarters. Supervisor Barton completed this work while training a new building and grounds maintenance employee and maintaining his daily responsibilities. Supervisor Barton continually goes above and beyond what is requested. He is knowledgeable and experienced in maintaining the Troop B shooting range and commercial driver license testing sites and responds to maintenance requests from zone offices. If the Troop B mechanic is on vacation, Supervisor Barton will make himself available to assist in that area as needed.
Building & Grounds Maintenance Supervisor Roy D. Barton is a credit to himself and to this organization. His leadership, knowledge, and work ethic are an asset to the state of Missouri. His actions are in keeping with the highest tradition of the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
