LONDON, Ky. (10-28-2021) – On October 27, Lt. Gov. Jacqueline Coleman joined Kentucky State Police (KSP) to recognize the promotion of 26 troopers and officers who were promoted since May 1, 2021 including one lieutenant colonel, one major, four captains, four lieutenants and 16 sergeants where commissioned with a mission of creating a better Kentucky through public safety efforts and service to all Kentuckians.
During the ceremony, KSP Commissioner Phillip Burnett, Jr. challenged troopers and officers to strive for excellence. “It’s an incredible responsibility. You’ve earned it, but now you have to keep earning it, each and every day. I have every confidence that you will do just that, never allowing anything to tarnish the accomplishments you have worked so hard to achieve.”
Post 11 London promotions include Trooper Billy T. Correll who was promoted to Sergeant.
Captain Danny. Caudill stated he is very proud of Sergeant Correll. When Sergeant Correll decided to promote I was scared that we would be losing a great Trooper but also a seasoned detective and leader of men. After we found out Sgt. Correll was going to get promoted and was going to get to stay at Post 11 London, it was a no-brainer Sergeant. Correll was going to be my Detective Sergeant.
A complete listing of all the officers who promoted can be found here.
The mission of KSP is to promote public safety through service, integrity and professionalism using partnerships to prevent, reduce and deter crime and the fear of crime, enhance highway safety through education and enforcement, safeguard property and protect individual rights.
