The 2019 KSP Civilian Awards Ceremony celebrating these individuals was held in Lexington on July 19.One civilian employee located within the Post 6 area was included in those honors.
Criminal Intelligence Analyst I, Dacia Wood, received the Special Enforcement Support Award. A 13-year veteran of Kentucky State Police, Dacia is located within the Intelligence Branch at Post 6 – Dry Ridge. Dacia began her career June, 2006 as a Telecommunicator at Post 6 before advancing to Shift Supervisor in 2008. In 2015, Dacia was promoted to Radio Room Supervisor and has continued a pattern of excellence into her current role in Criminal Intelligence, which she began in 2017.
KSP Commissioner Rick Sanders spoke prior to the ceremony, thanking the winners for their dedicated service.
“We know that every one of our civilian employees is a Godsend to this agency,” said Sanders. “When the hot calls come in from the public, these folks are there to answer the call—whether it be from dispatch, the garage, the crime lab, or any of our administrative offices.”
Post Commander Chris Steward said, “As I reflect on the past year and all Post 6 has experienced, I am certain if it were not for Dacia’s efforts and selfless willingness to go above beyond, Post 6 would have had an extremely tough year with tougher outcomes. Dacia’s actions over the last year—helping with the Radio Room, helping with administrative duties, and performing her duties as a Criminal Intelligence Analyst—all contributed greatly to Post 6’s operation in fulfillment of the agency’s mission. To say Dacia Wood is a valued employee is an understatement. Post 6 is extremely fortunate to have her here, working with us on a daily basis.”
