KSP to Hire Retired Officers
By Angela Hatton
Frankfort, KY – The Kentucky State Police says it will begin hiring retired officers on a contractual basis. The General Assembly passed legislation during a special session this year that allows the KSP to re-employ some troopers. Retirees with at least twenty years' experience, clean records, and who have not been away from the department for longer than five years are eligible. Earlier this year, KSP Commissioner Rodney Brewer said trooper levels were well below the ideal. In June, the KSP employed 928 officers, but authorized troop strength is 1,070.
