  • The six-county Troop I area of the Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP), which includes Phelps County, will have a new commander starting next month.
    Lt. James W. Remillard is being promoted to the rank of captain and designated commanding officer of Troop I headquartered in Rolla.
    His promotion will be effective Sunday, June 1. He replaces Capt. Lee Ann Kenley as commanding officer. She will retire June 1. In 2008, Kenley became the first female troop commander in Missouri history.
    Remillard was appointed to the patrol on Jan. 1, 1990, as a member of the 62nd Recruit Class.
    Upon completing his training at the patrol’s Law Enforcement Academy, he was assigned to Troop C, Zone 4, St. Louis County.
    On May 1, 1995, he was promoted to corporal and designated assistant zone supervisor of Troop C, Zone 2, St. Louis County.
    He was then promoted to sergeant and designated zone supervisor of Troop C, Zone 4, St. Louis County on July 1, 1998.
    On March 1, 2002, he was promoted to lieutenant and transferred to Troop I. In 2007, he graduated from the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia.
    Remillard grew up in Washington, Missouri. He and his wife, Karen S. (Biermann), have two children, Alex and Samuel.
    A going-away party for Kenley was held May 9. Kenley began her career with the patrol in September of 1985 as a member of the 57th Recruit Class.
    Troop I covers Phelps, Pulaski, Maries, Dent, Crawford and Laclede counties.
