FRANKFORT, Ky. – The Kentucky State Police (KSP) honored nine members of the agency who went above and beyond the call of duty to make highways safer in the Commonwealth.  The sixth annual “Excellence in Highway Safety” award ceremony was held at KSP Headquarters on March 26, 2013.  The awards are based upon the highest number of occupant protection, speed, driving under the influence (DUI), commercial motor vehicle (CMV) citations written and educational programs presented during 2012. 

KSP Commissioner Rodney Brewer presented the awards to four troopers, three officers and two civilian inspectors.

“I am proud of the troopers and officers who are being honored today and it extends beyond these nine individuals,” says Brewer.  “It’s really every unit we have that’s out there on our highways, or in our local communities, advocating for highway safety on a daily basis.”

Cumberland-resident Tpr. Jason S. Young is a three-year veteran from the Harlan Post and received the Excellence in Highway Safety award for Speed Enforcement. Young wrote 1,881 speed citations in 2012. 

Brewer thanked all the award recipients for their desire to save lives and make the Commonwealth safer for Kentuckians.

“We have a group of officers who go beyond what is normally expected of them and we want to show them how much we appreciate what they do.  Their efforts have a direct impact on reducing deaths in Kentucky. They make a real contribution to keeping roadways safer throughout the state," he said.
