The Dispatchers at Post 9 received 4,075 calls for service post wide, which include Police, Fire and EMS calls. 1,274 of those calls were 911 calls in the Pike and Floyd Counties. 664 of those calls were wireless 911 calls from the post area.

The Post 9 area includes Pike, Floyd, Martin, Magoffin and Johnson Counties.

As always we want to encourage everyone to wear their safety belts and use child safety seats for all children under 40 inches tall. Citizens can assist law enforcement officers in keeping the state's roadways safer by reporting suspected impaired drivers by calling toll free, 1-800-222-5555 (in the state of Kentucky only, does not work out of state). Further, The Kentucky State Police encourage the public to report any suspected drug activity to our anonymous drug tip-line at 1-800-DOPETIP or 1-800-367-3847.
