Goals of the Retired Military Police Association

Mcdowell County, WV has been selected by the Retired Military
Police Association to build their first youth retreat, hopefully we will
build many more in the years to come. This retreat has been in the planning
stages since 1998. Our second retreat will probably be in VA. Our membership
is composed of retired military police personnel as well as active
and former military police and law enforcementofficers. They have first
hand knowledge and experience of what drug usage, and dysfunctional
family life is doing to our youth and society.
This retreat will have a controlled type environment for the youth assigned by the courts to our training program. We will be working with both boys and girls assigned by the courts to attend our training programs. In some cases we will request that the Judge order the concerned parents to attend.
Our retreat site includes 68 acres on Honey Camp Branch off Hwy 52 between Roderfield and Premiere. Our first building will be a small chapel which we have already been issued a building permit from the county. In the future, we will also have a dormitory, library, outdoor theater, nature trails, mountain climbing, map courses and sports areas.
Our first goals are to build on this site a Chapel, Compass courses, Nature trails, Confidence training area, and a Helicopter pad. Our retreat will be available during periods when we are not training to local organizations during periods when we are not training..
We have some highly knowledgeable and educated members in the RMPA to conduct the training as well as special forces in some phases of our programs.
Senator John P. Fanning from Iaeger, Ron Collins of Premier and Clyde Mullins of Garland are dedicated members of our association who are very supportive of our efforts. All of our members are dedicated volunteers and work without pay.
With the support and help of the caring citizens of West Virginia this retreat will become a reality.
