Local Kentucky State Police Receives New Crime Fighting Vehicle

ksp truck2

HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (3/27/13) – Capt. Ricki Allen, commander of Kentucky State Police Post 2 in Madisonville, received the keys to a new Crime Scene Response Vehicle (CSRV) from KSP Commissioner Rodney Brewer on March 26 at KSP headquarters in Frankfort.

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.”
