Employee education incentives were cut from the Kentucky State Police budget many years ago forcing agency employees to fully fund any advanced education opportunity they may wish to pursue. While state salaries continue to remain flat, the price of continuing education continues to climb resulting in the unfortunate but necessary cut of education from the agency and employees personal budgets.
All employees of the Kentucky State Police strive for perfection. In that pursuit, consistent education and training is necessary to keep skills sharp and stay up to date on the latest methods to improve service to all citizens of our Commonwealth. Troopers, laboratory and forensic scientists, computer technologists, program analysts and many other employees of the Kentucky State Police spend hours in various classes geared toward their specialized branch. Regardless of the type of training, tuition has to be paid.
With your help, the Kentucky State Police Foundation will institute an Employee Scholarship program designed to advance the education of all employees. Our plan presents a holistic approach to improving employee knowledge and service to our Commonwealth. Whether through a college / university degree program, a certification course, training conference or executive level leadership, your donation will ensure the professional men and women of the Kentucky State Police are among the best trained in the nation.
