CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A beloved member of the West Virginia State Police is being remembered by those who worked with him.

Sgt. John Syner, 52, was commander of the State Police Detachment in Marlinton and was killed in an off duty accident on his property in Fayette County.

Friends tell MetroNews Syner was cutting trees on his property Saturday when one of them fell awkwardly and struck him. According to friends, the impact knocked Syner into a nearby pond and caused fatal injuries. Syner was an experienced tree cutter.

“John was loved by so many in the community and worked diligently to serve the community in any way he could. John was a loving husband, father and pops.” read a statement from the West Virginia State Police about his death.

Syner was active in his local community as a youth league sports coach and with various school and non-profit charitable work. He was awarded the State Police Superintendent’s Award in 2019, one of the highest honors an individual trooper can be awarded as a member of the organization.

WV state trooper receives Trooper of the year award

KEARNEYSVILLE, W.Va. (WDVM) — One West Virginia State Trooper has been honored for the hard work he’s been doing in the community. Corp. Zachary Nine was named Trooper of the Year at the Troop Two Headquarters in Kearneysville for his work ethic and individual stats.

The award is to show troopers how much they are appreciated and to thank them for a job well done. Trooper Nine has been with the department for 18 years. His colleagues voted for him out of everyone in the Eastern Panhandle to receive this award.

“You know it is nice, sometimes it’s a think less job, so you know when we do get the thanks within it makes you feel good about the things that you are doing,” Nine said.

Not only did Trooper Nine receive an award but he also received a new ride. He said his goal for the 2021 season is to provide for his community.

The West Virginia State Police (WVSP) is a state law enforcement agency in the United States that provides police services to the residents of West Virginia. It is the fourth-oldest state police agency in the US, and was created in the second extraordinary session of the West Virginia Legislature on June 19, 1919, as a result of uprisings surrounding organized labor in the coal and mine industries.[3]

History[edit]

Governor John Jacob Cornwell was insistent upon having a State Police force which he said, "was mandatory in order for him to uphold the laws of our state." Part of the compromise was the name of the organization: "West Virginia Department of Public Safety" was the official name until 1995 when the name was changed to "West Virginia State Police" during the legislative session.

Today[edit]

Like other state law enforcement agencies, West Virginia troopers enforce traffic laws statewide, investigate crimes and protect the governor and his immediate family. The superintendent of the West Virginia State Police is Colonel Jan Cahill with Lieutenant Colonel Dwayne Bowles and Major Vince Deeds serving under Colonel Cahill

West Virginia State Police troopers wear a forest-green uniform and campaign hat. They receive their training at the West Virginia State Police Academy located in Institute, a suburb of Charleston, and near the agency's headquarters in South Charleston. Upon appointment, cadets undergo an intense training program at the State Police Academy.

The West Virginia State Police also runs its own forensic laboratory and provide scientific investigation services to law enforcement agencies across the state. Services offered to criminal justice agencies include biochemistry, drug, firearm investigations, latent prints, questioned documents, toxicology and trace evidence. The crime lab is accredited by the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors/Laboratory Accreditation Board (ASCLD/LAB).[4]

Recruitment and training[edit]

The West Virginia Division of Criminal Justice Services is responsible for setting minimum physical ability standards for police officers working in the state. In 2007, following a national trend, it relaxed the physical ability standards for aspiring police officers. Right now, any police applicant must do at least 27 push-ups/minute, 29 sit-ups/minute and be able to run 1.5 miles (2.4 km) in a maximum time limit of 14 minutes 53 seconds.[5] The State Police, however, chose not to follow those standards unlike most local police agencies in West Virginia. The agency's recruiters still require applicants to perform at least 27 push-ups/minute, 29 sit-ups/minute and those same applicants have to run 1.5 miles (2.4 km) in no more than 14 minutes 52 seconds, which were all the initial minimum requirements for all police departments in West Virginia.[6]

The West Virginia State Police Academy in Institute

Training at the paramilitary academy lasts about 25 weeks compared to about 16 weeks for officers from other departments (trained at the same academy). When cadets graduate, they are promoted to the rank of "Trooper." They can be stationed anywhere in the 55 West Virginia counties working from detachments (barracks). They serve an eighteen-month probationary period that starts at the time they enter the academy. After completing successfully that probationary period, they are eligible to receive an associate degree in police sciences through the Marshall Technical and Community College program.

Personnel[edit]

The State Police has struggled with staffing issues for many years and the problem seems to persist mainly due to lack of funding to dramatically increase the number of road troopers. As of 2013, the agency employed well above 600 sworn officers, making it de facto the largest law enforcement agency in the state.[7] The State Police is heavily relied upon to assist in many of the 55 West Virginia counties. In September 2013, news organizations started reporting a new initiative from the agency to increase manpower. The Accelerated Cadet Program targets local West Virginia police officers who want to join the State Police. Once hired, such officers would train for only 11 weeks instead of the 25 weeks normal cadets go through.

The State Police is and has been the only agency to operate a law enforcement academy in West Virginia. It trains its own troopers but also all other law enforcement officers from the state: sheriff deputies, city and college police officers, and motor carrier enforcement officers who, unlike in some states, are not part of the State Police but have their own separate agency.

Rank structure[edit]

Vehicles[edit]

State Police vehicles are composed of a variety of makes with blue and gold colors accompanied by the agency's logo on the side front doors.[8] For many years, the agency has used Ford Crown Victorias for the road. In recent years however, State Police has phased in Chevy Impalas and the new Ford Police Interceptor and Police Interceptor Utility into its fleet. The agency also uses unmarked vehicles that are usually assigned to command staff members. Vehicles are mainly equipped with blue LED lights.

Weapons[edit]

Troopers are issued the .45 ACPSmith & Wesson 4566TSW, a version of the Smith & Wesson Model 4506.[9] It has a bobbed hammer and blue metal finish. Each WVSP 4566TSW has the agency name and shoulder patch engraved. Each Trooper is issued an attachable flashlight which mounts to their pistol.[10][11]

As of December 2018, Troopers are now using Glock 17 Gen 5 9mm handguns.

People insisted and demanded to sign on their hands, stomachs, notebooks, etc. I felt that someone grabbed my hand tightly, I could not understand who it was, but he held it tightly and did. Not let go. Then I, nevertheless, pulled it out and returned to the stage.

Similar news:

And suddenly I feel how you slowly enter me. a soft moan breaks from my lips. You move gently, penetrating deeper and deeper. I hug you, hugging you closer to me. Feeling that I finally relaxed, you start to move faster.
