Hunter CarrollMADISONVILLE, Ky. (8/14/17) — Kentucky State Police Post 2 Madisonville announced a new trooper has joined its ranks.

Trooper Hunter Carroll was part of the agency’s fourth Law Enforcement Accelerated Program, a condensed course for current police officers who have at least two years of Kentucky Police Officer Professional Standards law enforcement experience. The troopers started the 11-week training cycle May 21 in a class that consisted of 63 cadets. 

Carrol is a 26-year-old native of Hopkinsville and a 2013 graduate of Austin Peay State University, with a bachelor of science degree in criminal justice.  Prior to joining KSP, he worked as a deputy for the Christian County Sheriff’s Office, Public Information Trooper Sean Wint said.

KSP reported 22 resigned during the weeks of constant mental and physical challenges that followed.
 
Trooper Carroll will undergo an extensive field-training period with experienced troopers for approximately six weeks. Afterward, he will be assigned a primary county for patrol. 

A total of 41 new troopers graduated Friday from the KSP Academy in Frankfort. Their addition to the force brings the agency’s strength to a total of 866 troopers serving the people of the commonwealth, KSP said.
