KSP Names Civilian Employee of the Year and Other Support Personnel Award Winners

(FRANKFORT, Ky.) - Gov. Paul Patton joined Kentucky State Police Commissioner Patrick N. Simpson to honor 23 of the agency's most outstanding civilian employees at a special ceremony held today at the Holiday Inn Capital Plaza in Frankfort.

Frankfort resident Mary Therese Richerson, a program coordinator with the Governor's Highway Safety Program, was honored as the 2003 Civilian Employee of the Year. She also received the Administrative Support Service Award for the Governor's Highway Safety Program.

Richerson networks with federal, state and local agencies in the development of police traffic services for increased speed enforcement, traffic alcohol programs for increased DUI enforcement and adult and youth alcohol programs for increased statewide public awareness. As a result of her efforts, Kentucky has met the requirements necessary to qualify for additional federal funding of $927,766 for alcohol-impaired driving countermeasures.

"The true benefits that the citizens of the Commonwealth receive from state employees can never be measured," said Gov. Patton. "I commend all of today's award winners for their achievement."

"With so many demands placed on our agency in these new and different times, the importance of our civilian employees becomes even more apparent," notes Commissioner Simpson. "Not a day goes by in the life of a trooper that the services they provide go unused. They make it easier for our troopers to serve the citizens of Kentucky effectively, efficiently and professionally."

A 10-year veteran of KSP, Richerson is a 1982 graduate of Jackson High School in McKee, Ky.

Other KSP employees receiving Support Personnel Awards at the ceremony included:

Police Communication Support Service Award

Clerical Support Service Award

Driver Testing Support Award

Forensic Service Support Award

Administrative Support Service Award

Scientific Support Service Award

Computer Technology Technical Support Award

Records Technical Support Service Award

Facility Security Support Service Award

Enforcement Support Service Award

Maintenance Support Service Award
