FRANKFORT, Ky. (6/8/13) – Law enforcement officers from 15 agencies across the state graduated today from basic training at the Kentucky Department of Criminal Justice Training.

Major training areas included homeland security, law offenses and procedures, vehicle operations, firearms, investigations, first aid/CPR, patrol procedures, orientation for new law enforcement families and mechanics of arrest, restraint and control.
