KSP Recognizes Promotion Of 77 Kentucky State Police Officers

The Kentucky State Police recognized the promotion of 77 agency officers at a ceremony held Oct. 26 in Lexington. Two lieutenant colonels, five majors, 12 captains, 22 lieutenants, and 36 sergeants were commissioned.

KSP Commissioner Rick Sanders told the new promotees that in their new roles they have one of the toughest jobs around. They have to satisfy those above them while encouraging and energizing those who work for them.

“Great leaders are not born,” he said, “they are built. And the two most important attributes of leadership are a concern for the welfare of those who work for you and leadership by example. You can’t get up and preach without walking the walk.”
