KSP Accepting Applications for Accelerated Class
>FRANKFORT, Ky. (July 13, 2016) – The Kentucky State Police is now accepting applications for the agency's fourth Law Enforcement Accelerated Program (LEAP), which is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2017. This 11-week program is designed for current law enforcement officers who would like to become Kentucky State Troopers. Applicants must have three years of Kentucky Police Officer Professional Standards (POPS) law enforcement experience by March 1, 2017.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (July 11, 2016) -- With the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicting that most of the U.S. will face well above average temperatures this summer, Kentucky State Police is warning parents and caregivers about the fatal dangers posed by leaving children in hot cars.
"Heat stroke is the leading cause of non-crash related deaths for children ages 14 and younger," says Sgt. Michael Webb, a spokesman for the agency. "Your car can become an oven very quickly, reaching temperatures of 125 degrees in minutes even with the windows cracked."
"A child's body heats up three to five times faster than that of an adult," adds Webb, "and heat stroke can occur in temperatures as low as 57 degrees. On an 80-degree day, a car can reach deadly levels in just 10 minutes."
