FRANKFORT, Ky. - Capt. Jeffrey Suratt (left), commander of Kentucky State Police Post 15 in Columbia, received the keys
to a new Crime Scene Response Vehicle (CSRV) from KSP Commissioner Rodney Brewer (right) on
March 26 at KSP headquarters in Frankfort.

The Columbia KSP post was one of several posts across the state to receive a new CSRV.

The Ford Super Duty Truck is equipped with everything
needed for on-scene crime analysis including a generator, trace evidence analysis and a latent fingerprint processing machine. The CSRV will expedite investigations by providing detectives with greater storage capacity and state-of-the-art tools to collect all possible evidence at the scene.

This enhanced capability
will assist in prosecuting criminals by providing additional visual evidence that will lead to stiffer penalties. 
No public funds were used to purchase the truck. KSP utilized Asset Forfeiture Funds to acquire the $30,000 vehicle. These funds are from the sale of assets such as real property, vehicles, vessels, aircraft and jewelry that are seized by state, local or federal law enforcement during criminal investigations.  

“Positioning these vehicles at all KSP posts will be a valuable asset to KSP as well as an additional resource for local law enforcement,” said Brewer. “Combining state and local resources, especially during difficult economic times, will provide the Commonwealth with more efficient and effective crime solving methods that will result in decreased criminal activity in our state.”

Can any of that forfeiture money be used to feed the hungry and house the homeless? Maybe pay the salary of the taxpayer funded guy/girl who is going to use the vehicle?
