On September 30, 2022, Gov.

APS, also called the sergeant's academy, is a three-week, 122-hour training program targeted for newly promoted sergeants or officers who are on their agency's promotion list to become sergeants.

Among the graduates is Sgt. Evan Burton with the Columbia Police Department.

APS was launched in 2003 as one of DOCJT's illustrious leadership courses aimed at developing and shaping future and current leaders in law enforcement agencies across the commonwealth. The training program is a deep dive into how to positively influence groups of people, as well as how to apply situational leadership, demonstrate an understanding of constitutional and administrative law, emotional and social intelligence, ethical decision making, problem solving, emotional survival, and public speaking.

October is National Pedestrian Safety Month

From Erin G. Eggen

Frankfort, KY - Gov. Andy Beshear, whose Better Kentucky Plan includes an emphasis on highway safety, announced that October is National Pedestrian Safety Month.

"We're asking every driver to watch for pedestrians as you would if it was one of your friends or family members, and we're asking every pedestrian to be fully aware of your surroundings," said Gov. Beshear. "In any crash involving a vehicle and a pedestrian, the pedestrian is far more likely to be killed or injured. Practical habits, especially putting your phone down while driving or walking, can save dozens of Kentuckians' lives every year."
