When KSP troopers encounter young children, it is often due to a traumatic situation such as a car crash, exposure to drugs, or domestic abuse cases that frequently result in the arrest of a parent. KSP hopes their ‘Trooper Teddy’ bears will serve as a tool to calm innocent children found in these circumstances.
Gov. Matt Bevin joined Justice Cabinet Secretary John Tilley and Kentucky State Police Commissioner Rick Sanders to remember fallen KSP troopers and officers at a memorial service and wreath-laying ceremony held today at the KSP Training Academy in Frankfort.
Life on the run came to a deadly end early Friday for a convicted felon, who was wanted in two states. State Police say 62-year old Floyd Ray Cook, of Lebanon, Kentucky, was shot and killed in an exchange of gunfire with two Kentucky State Troopers and one U.S. Marshal.
