State Police Celebrate 60th Anniversary

Tuesday marks a milestone for Kentucky State Police. This is the 60th anniversary of the agency.

The KSP was formed in 1948 by then-Governor Earl Clements.

The FBI and Indiana State Police helped train the first officers. There were originally 147 members.

Today, the agency has 16 posts and nearly one thousand troopers.
