KSP 'Cram the Cruiser' campaign collects 52 tons of food

Date of News Release: 12/19/2012

(Frankfort, Ky.) -- Kentucky State Police Commissioner Rodney Brewer announced today that the 'Cram the Cruiser' food drive netted 105,148 pounds (52.6 tons) of food statewide.

Brewer challenged each post to promote the campaign in an effort to give back to their local communities. In 2011, the statewide campaign collected 50,931 pounds of food. The ten-day 2012 campaign indicates a 106 percent increase over what the agency did last year.

"This campaign has been extremely successful and has allowed our agency to reach out to families in need during a critical time of the year," says Brewer. "Amazingly, personnel from the Harlan Post gathered nearly 11 tons of food."

Posts distributed the non-perishable food items to local shelters, food banks and needy families during the Christmas holiday.
