Kentucky State Police Recruiting Cadets For 2012

The Kentucky State Police are recruiting cadets for the class of 2012. Recruitment Commander Rick Saint-Blancard says the KSP training academy in Frankfort can accommodate as many as 120 cadets.He says applicants must be prepared for the physical and mental rigors of a 23-week training program. "We have a significant drop rate in our academy, and really our objective is to have everybody that steps foot in the academy day one finish. And while we know that that won’t be the case, we would like to minimize that by closing the gap between what they perceive the job to be and what the actual realities areThe Kentucky State Police force currently has more than 900 troopers.Saint-Blancard says that number fluctuates with changes in attrition and funding levels.
