To commemorate the life of a Kentucky State Trooper who was killed in the line of duty last year, the Kentucky State Police and Transportation Cabinet are renaming a portion of Interstate 24 in Lyon County.

Kentucky State Police at Post 1 in Hickory held a dedication ceremony Monday for a memorial honoring two fallen Graves County troopers. The monument remembers Trooper Eric Chrisman and Joseph Ponder. Both troopers died in service last year. 


UPDATE: Troopers from KSP Post 1 and Post 2 conducted a felony traffic stop on a vehicle traveling on Interstate 69 in Caldwell County.  Troopers took Tabor and Britt into custody at 12:28 PM yesterday. 

Hopkins County Central Dispatch

The Kentucky State Police presented a plan for E911 services to the Paducah City Commission and the McCracken County Fiscal Court last night.  Major John Bradley says the consolidated dispatch service is the largest proposed in the state and would cost $1.2 million in startup costs.

No Decision on McCracken Co. 911

Paducah Fire Chief Steve Kyle told the city commission Tuesday night there are still too many unknowns to make a recommendation on whether to contract with Kentucky State Police for 911 operations or continue self-operations. Kyle says a major concern for the Emergency Communication System is the ability of the Mayfield KSP’s proposed 10 dispatchers to handle Paducah-McCracken County’s entire call volume with a decrease in certain services and connections.


The Kentucky State Police post in Mayfield has been training school employees in how to respond in a crisis with a special training program that the post created.

Lt. Brent White says police have trained nearly 700 school staff members in 13 schools, and he says feedback indicates those employees feel more confident.
