KSP 'Cram the Cruiser' Campaign Nets 62 Tons of Food

Date of News Release: 12/18/2013

(FRANKFORT, Ky.) - Kentucky State Police Commissioner Rodney Brewer announced today that the agency's 'Cram the Cruiser' food drive netted 124,064 pounds (62 tons) of food statewide.

Brewer initiated the program in 2010 to assist needy families in local KSP post and Commercial vehicle Enforcement region areas. Since that time, the agency has contributed more than 300,000 pounds of food to shelters, food banks and churches across the Commonwealth.

"The Kentucky State Police continue to maintain the traditions of service that our agency was founded on over sixty-five years ago," says Brewer. "Helping those in need is a fundamental part of our mission throughout rural Kentucky."

Brewer says the campaign has developed into a friendly competition among KSP posts and CVE regions to see which location can collect the most food. The Harlan Post is the reigning champion with a total of 29,944 pounds of food collected this year.

Harlan Post Capt. P.J. Burnett says the 'Cram the Cruiser' effort from his post is led by Trooper Shane Jacobs.

"I commend Trooper Jacobs and all Harlan Post staff for this extraordinary effort in collecting this amount of food," says Burnett. "This could not have been accomplished without the help from the citizens and businesses in our post area. These donations will help provide meals to needy families throughout the post coverage area."

The Harlan Post includes Bell, Harlan and Knox counties in its patrol area.
