KSP was the 300 millionth transaction through the NICS.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Dec. 6, 2018) – KSP received recognition from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) for reaching a milestone by completing 300 million transactions in the system. The NICS is a United States system for determining if prospective firearms or explosives buyers’ name and birth year match those of a person who is not eligible to purchase.
National NICS Chief Robin Stark-Nutter advised KSP that on November 4, 2018, at 6:14:15 p.m., the agency conducted a NICS query for a permit that resulted in the 300 millionth transaction through the NICS.
“The NICS Section would like to memorialize this achievement by congratulating KSP and recognizing the hard work the agency engages in every day to promote public safety,” says Stark-Nutter. “Your agency’s contributions are key factors in contributing to safer streets and neighborhoods within your state and across the nation. By working together, we can continue to provide the best service possible to our communities.”
KSP Technical Services Division Director Lieutenant Colonel Jeff Medley praised the diligent efforts of the Concealed Carry Deadly Weapon Section. “This recognition is well deserved by the staff who manage our CCDW and NICS Sections on a daily basis. Their meticulous effort to ensure the accuracy of this database while handling a high volume of records is second to none.”
