Two officers from KSP Post 16-Henderson and one officer with CVE Region 1-Henderson were honored at the ceremony.

Trooper Billy Begley of Owensboro was presented with Post 16’s “Trooper of the Year”. During the calendar year of 2013, Trooper Begley issued 1,335 citations, 560 of those citations were for speed, 150 non-seatbelt compliance, 11 citations for failure to utilize a child restraint, 12 impaired drivers, investigated 37 criminal cases, 244 criminal arrests and investigated 46 collisions. “Trooper Begley is an excellent example of an all around trooper and an ideal employee. His motivation and enthusiasm are exemplary and second to none,” said Captain Robert Shoultz, Commander of Post 16-Henderson.

Trooper Begley is assigned to the Ohio and McLean County squad. He has been a trooper with the Kentucky State Police for over 2 ½ years.

Detective Nathan Jenkin of Morganfield was named Post 16’s “Detective of the Year”. During the calendar year of 2013, Detective Jenkin investigated 42 illicit drug related cases, dedicating 1,949 hours to those complaints. As a result, Jenkin executed 40 criminal arrests. “Detective Jenkin's case load and criminal investigations are mostly self-generated and he has proven to be highly motivated in the area of narcotics investigations,” said Captain Shoultz. “Detective Jenkin has adapted very well in his role as the street-level narcotics detective and he strives to perform those duties to the best of his abilities,” Shoultz added.

Detective Jenkin is currently assigned to Post 16’s Street-Level Narcotics and he is a five year veteran of the Kentucky State Police.
