    Faithful Citizenship Luncheon

  • The Kentucky State Police Academy presented diplomas to 60 new troopers, including Billy J. Begley, 28, of Marion County, during ceremonies held in Frankfort on Sunday, Oct. 30. Their addition to the force brings the agency’s strength to a total of 914 troopers serving the citizens of the Commonwealth.
    The new troopers started a 23-week training cycle on May 22, 2011 in a class that consisted of 81 cadets. Ten failed initial physical testing during the first two hours. Eleven more resigned during the weeks of constant mental and physical challenges that followed.

  • With Autumn’s arrival and deer hunting season pending, motorists will see increased movement of wildlife throughout the Commonwealth. November is traditionally the heart of deer migration and mating season creating greater potential for deer-car crashes.
    Lt. David Jude, Spokesperson for KSP, says motorists need to take extra precautions when driving in the fall.
    “It is extremely important to recognize this ever-present risk, especially at this time of year when nearly 50 percent of all collisions with deer occur,” remarked Jude.
