If KSP and KVE have merged and become one agency why do I still see officers in both grey and tan cars/uniforms?

Last July Governor Beshear announced the Kentucky State Police and Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement would join forces as a way to cut costs. Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement is now a division of Kentucky State Police. The reorganization is expected to save the state up to $1 million a year.

When the governor announced the merger last year he said KVE officers would spend more time staffing weigh stations along interstate highways and less time patrolling. They are still responsible, primarily, for commercial vehicles so you will continue to see KVE officers out and about in their tan uniforms and cars.
