I think the correct question would be can we afford not to? Trust me...you may feel different when you're on the other end of that 911 call and help is 20 minutes out or more. Lexington and Louisville alone have manpower in the thousands just for their own area... whereas for the entire state of Kentucky there are about 300 actual road troopers. You want more of these guys and girls out there with the training they receive. This is me being polite trying to tell you to stop whining about the "costs" of Kentucky's budget. It would be nice if my husband's backup wasn't 45 minutes out sometimes. As his wife this alone would help me sleep better at night. All I have to say is Get Some Class 91. Your KSP family is behind you. -KSP Trooper Wife
