KSP Holds Crowd Control Training
(Frankfort, Ky.) -- Kentucky State Troopers took part in riot and crowd control training at the KSP Academy in Frankfort on Oct. 16. The course was led by instructors from the Toronto (Canada) Police Service. "New crowd control techniques require officers to think and act smarter in order to protect themselves and the public during times of unrest or threats to homeland security," says Capt. Phil Crumpton, commander of the academy. "KSP Troopers constantly update their skills to maintain a high state of readiness that reduces injuries to all parties while ensuring public safety."
