It is the objective of the Kentucky State Police Cadet Training Program to provide the necessary knowledge and skills, which will enable a Cadet to perform those tasks required of a Kentucky State Police Trooper. To this end, intensified academic, vocational, and physical training programs have been developed.
An integral part of police work, and thus the Cadet Training Program, is the establishment of discipline and procedure. As a result, various rules and regulations have been established which ensure the efficient and effective operation of the Cadet Training Program.
The Kentucky State Police strive to maintain the highest standards of excellence utilizing training and technology to create a safe environment for citizens and continue as a national leader in law enforcement.
The Kentucky State Police promotes public safety through service, integrity, and professionalism utilizing partnerships to: 1) Prevent, reduce, and deter crime and the fear of crime; 2) Enhance highway safety through education and enforcement and 3) Safeguard property and protect individual rights.
