KSP-owensKSP Post 16 Awards

HENDERSON, Ky. (5/15/14) — The Kentucky State Police announced the 2013 Trooper of the Year, Detective of the Year, Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Officer of the Year and other awards for acts of bravery, life-saving, professionalism and dedication to duty at the Frankfort Convention Center in Frankfort, Wednesday, May 14, 2014.

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.

Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Officer Harold E. Mosley of Henderson was named the 2013 “Jason Cammack Officer of the Year” for the KSP Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division.

In 2013 Mosley led his region in commercial vehicle activity with a total of 902 citations and 96 arrests including 18 DUI arrests. He conducted 591 commercial vehicle inspections: 336 of these were Level 1 inspections and 21.4 percent contained hazardous materials. He also assisted the KSP post in his area on numerous occasions by participating in Operation Black Friday and four Internet Crimes Against Children details.

“Officer Mosley consistently exceeds the expectations of the position by going above and beyond the departmental requirements in areas of productivity, fitness, and professionalism” said Captain Marc Schnepp, Commander of CVE Region 1-Henderson.

Mosley is a four year veteran of the division and is assigned to CVE Region 1 based in Henderson.
