KVE Merging With KSP

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Gov. Steve Beshear has announced a
reorganization within the Justice Cabinet that will make Kentucky
Vehicle Enforcement a division of Kentucky State Police.

The two agencies share responsibility for highway safety.

Under the reorganization, Beshear says Vehicle Enforcement
officers will spend more time staffing weigh stations along
interstate highways and less time patrolling.

Beshear says the reorganization will save the state $750,000 to
$1 million a year in personnel costs, fuel savings and other
efficiencies. He says it will also increase revenue through fines
and fees.
