State Police Leaders Return From Fundraising Hike

Kentucky State Police

The head of KSP and a lieutenant colonel are back after a two-day, 30-mile memorial hike across the Grand Canyon.

State Police Commissioner Rodney Brewer and Lt. Col. Jack Miniard used vacation time to make the trip last weekend and paid their own expenses. They want supporters to donate a dollar to a project to erect a 7 ½-foot bronze trooper statue on the grounds of the new state police Training Academy in Frankfort.

Brewer and Miniard carried photos of the 27 officers who lost their lives in the line of duty since the agency's founding in 1948.

To donate, visit http://www.thetrooperproject.com or mail to The Trooper Project, 919 Versailles Road, Frankfort, KY 40601.
