KSP Post 2 Realignment of Uniform Troopers
Date of News Release: 01/08/2016
Madisonville, KY - The Kentucky State Police at Post 2 - Madisonville announces the realignment of uniform troopers in its seven county district. Beginning on Sunday, January 10, 2016, citizens in the following counties will begin seeing a more consistent presence of KSP uniformed troopers:
Prior to this date, the staffing levels in these counties were not commensurate with the agency's mission statement. Captain Brent White explains. "Each of our 16 Posts across the Commonwealth are different based upon the communities they serve. The Mayfield and Bowling Green Posts, for example, are heavily impacted by way of being 911 Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP) for contracted city and county governments. The Madisonville Post does not currently fit into this description; thus, it must be responsive to each of our counties independently. The taxpaying citizen in each of these counties deserves the same level of access to their state police agency as other counties have been receiving previously. With this new realignment of our limited sworn personnel allotment, our coverage across the district, Sunday through Saturday, should be improved."
The Madisonville Post desires to partner with local law enforcement in each of these communities to enhance overall public safety. Should a significant event happen in the district, more personnel should be available to respond in a regional approach. Currently, Post 2 - Madisonville only has an authorized compliment of 21 uniformed troopers for the entire seven county district. This number does not include investigative and supervisory personnel.
