Get to Know MNOA Secretary Beverly Gillam

The Missouri Narcotics Officers Association (MNOA) is a professional organization dedicated to supporting law enforcement officers involved in narcotics enforcement in the state of Missouri.

The MNOA collaborates with various agencies and organizations involved in drug enforcement, such as local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies, as well as prosecutors, treatment professionals, and community organizations.

By fostering these partnerships, our association seeks to promote effective drug control strategies and develop a coordinated approach to combating narcotics-related issues in the state of Missouri.

Without the help of our registered members and the support of the communities we protect, our organization would not be able to provide the same level of training to Missouri’s finest.

Our team of trusted board members help to ensure that the MNAO is focused on improving communities and protecting its residents, while continuing to set the standard for narcotics law enforcement training within the United States.
