Hopkins County Attorney Purchase Equipment for KSP from Traffic Safety Funds

PPOOL 2 500

MADISONVILLE, Ky. (9/17/13) – Hopkins County Attorney, Todd P’Pool, recently launched a County Attorney Traffic Safety (CATS) program which allows traffic violators charged with simple traffic offenses to complete an online safety course for a fee.

The fees generated from the program are used to supplement the operating expenses for the Hopkins County Attorney’s Office in the face of a declining state budget. P’Pool has also chosen to invest remaining funds from the program into Hopkins County.
 
“As the Hopkins County Attorney, I believe that education and public safety should be top priorities in our community,” said Todd P’Pool.
 
Earlier this week the County Attorney’s Office purchased new equipment for the Kentucky State Police.
 
“Unfortunately, the men and women on the front lines of public safety often times have insufficient means to purchase necessary equipment. To alleviate the burden of a declining state budget, I have chosen to assist our local law enforcement agencies with some of these additional funds.” Said P’Pool.
 
To date, the agency has invested in the Madisonville Police Department to help establish a new K9 unit; Family Traditions, a company that provides books to local elementary schools; Trooper Island, a program of public service to the youth of Hopkins County; and Junior Achievement of Hopkins County, a program that teaches work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy to the 5th and 6th grade students in Hopkins County to name a few.
