Date of Photo Release: 03/01/2009
(Frankfort, Ky.) - Applications are now being accepted for a special license plate to help raise funds for Trooper Island, a free summer camp for disadvantaged boys and girls age 10-12 operated by the Kentucky State Police on Dale Hollow Lake in Clinton County. In order for the Transportation Cabinet to make this an official tag for vehicle registration in Kentucky, 900 applications must be received by September 2009. The cost is $28.00 at the time of application with an additional $16.00 due at the time of pick up. Applications can be obtained from any state police post or downloaded from the KSP web site at http://www.kentuckystatepolice.org/pdf/Isl_lic_app.pdf. Trooper Island is financed entirely by donations, no public funds are used. Each year, the camp hosts approximately 700 children, providing good food, fresh air, recreation, guidance and structured, esteem-building activities designed to build good citizenship and positive relationships with law enforcement officers.
