Kentucky State Police Promotes Three Officers

Date of News Release: 02/13/2007

(FRANKFORT, Ky.)--- The Kentucky State Police announced the promotion of three officers at a ceremony held today at KSP headquarters in Frankfort. One new major, one new captain and one new lieutenant were commissioned.

Capt. Al Rich, a native and resident of Williamstown, Ky., was promoted to major and transferred from KSP Post 6 in Dry Ridge to the Administrative Division at KSP headquarters in Frankfort. Rich is a 28-year veteran of the agency.

Lt. Eddie Johnson, a Louisville native and current resident of Danville, Ky., was promoted to captain and transferred from the KSP Academy to the Risk Management Branch at KSP headquarters in Frankfort. Johnson is a 23-year veteran of the agency.

Sgt. John Blanton, a native and resident of Salyersville, Ky., was promoted to lieutenant and transferred from the KSP Employee Assistance Branch in Frankfort to KSP Post 2 in Madisonville. Blanton is a 16-year veteran of the agency.

"Together, these officers represent a total of 67 years of law enforcement experience with the Kentucky State Police," said KSP Commissioner Jack Adams. "They are valuable assets who have honed their practical skills from the ground up through classroom studies and real world operations. We look forward to their future contributions that will help move the agency forward in fulfilling its public safety mission to the citizens of the Commonwealth."

Adams also thanked the families of the officers. "By its nature, the law enforcement profession often requires sacrifices of family members as well as the officers themselves," he said. "Their strength, support and understanding are critical factors in the success of a trooper. Without it, our mission would be much more difficult."
